RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The state Department of Revenue says the Charlotte microbrewery from Florida has evaded more than $ 92,000 in sales tax in three years.

The North Carolina Department of Revenue said 61-year-old Matt R. Cobin of Boynton Beach, Florida, was charged three counts of embezzlement of state property on Tuesday.

He was released on $ 50,000 bail and is due to be appointed to Wake County District Court on Wednesday.

Coben was a managing member of 7 Branches LLC, which did business in Charlotte as Growler USA, a microbrewery and restaurant. The arrest warrants allege that he assisted, aided and abetted the business in embezzlement, misuse and conversion for his own use of a $ 92,182 sales tax from January 2016 to January 2019.

The documents state that 7 branches were disbanded in October 2019.

The warrants say Coben was required to collect, store in confidence and transfer state sales taxes to the department. The allegations were the result of an investigation by officers of the department’s criminal investigation department.
