A Michigan man, with Mid-Michigan connections, has plead guilty to attempting to smuggle goods into the United States. According to court records, Curtis Wenzlaff, from Marquette, operated a domestic profit corporation, Sanno Industries, out of his home previously located in Flushing. Wenzlaff was acting as a drop shipper for companies outside the United States and was paid to assume the risk and consequences of the U.S. government identifying, seizing, and refusing entry of products illegally imported in to the United States, according to the records. Beginning in July 2014 and continuing until April 2016, Wenzlaff was involved with smuggling into the United States products commonly used to make drugs regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, officials charged.
