Berg Recycling Owner Indicted in Kickback Scheme

A federal grand jury indicted Adam Wayne Berg of Berg Bros. Recycling as part of an alleged bribery and kickback scheme at the National Security Agency. "The indictment charges that Adam Wayne Berg, Jeffrey Mark Harmon and Berg Bros Recycling, Inc. paid more than $110,000 in bribes to NSA employee Robert Barry Adcock," U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said in a press release.  "In return, the conspirators allegedly stole valuable recyclable metals from NSA without paying the full value." The Department of Defense Criminal Investigative Service and other law enforcement agencies raided Berg Bros Recycling, Inc. 16 months ago ("

," Mobtown Beat, Feb. 25, 2009), taking computers and documents. These charges appear to be the result of that raid. Adam Berg, 48, is not company founder Gerald "Buzz" Berg, the legendary "Wrecking czar" who was convicted of bid-rigging in the late 1970s. Also charged in the scheme were Harmon, who is Berg Brother's former President, and Adcock, who allegedly took his payments through a corporation he controlled called SRK.
