Wesley Harlan Kingsbury, general manager of the Southern California ambulance company Alpha Ambulance Inc., pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit Medicare fraud. According to court documents, Kingsbury conspired with Alex Kapri and Aleksey (Russ) Muratov, the owners of Alpha Ambulance, as well as the training supervisor Danielle Medina, to bill Medicare for ambulance transportation services for individuals that Kingsbury knew did not need to be transported by ambulance. In addition, he instructed emergency medical technicians that worked at Alpha Ambulance to conceal the true medical condition of patients they were transporting by altering requisite paperwork and creating false reasons to justify the transportation services.
