According to the complaint, Davis transferred the $1.9 million in retirement funds money to himself and/or the company over a four year period between 2006 and 2010.

The A.B.D. Tank & Pump Co. 401(k) & Profit Sharing Plan & Trust, a retirement plan for the company’s employees funded by employer contributions, was established in 1992. Davis is the plan’s trustee.

The Labor Department wants Davis to pay back all the money with interest. The department also wants Davis replaced as the retirement plans trustee.
