BIG LAKE - 20 years in federal prison. That's what a Big Lake man faces for his part in a million dollar mail fraud scheme.

A federal jury convicted 55-year-old Carlos Bueno on Thursday afternoon.

He owns Muy Bueno Backhoe Service in Big Lake.

From May 2007 to May 2009, Bueno contracted with Endeavor Energy to perform dirt work on lease roads.

But he submitted fraudulent invoices for work that was never performed or greatly exaggerated.
