PHILADELPHIA TRUCK STOP OWNER OWES STATE $300,000, CHARGES ALLEGE

 HARRISBURG, Pa., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The owner of a Philadelphia truck stop today was charged with failing to remit more than $300,000 in fuel use and oil franchise taxes to the state, Attorney General Ernie Preate Jr. announced.
 A complaint filed by Preate's Criminal Investigation and Prosecution Section identifies the suspect as Morris Silverman, 73, of Landmark No. 2, Cherry Hill, N.J., operator of Del Ex Terminals, 3540 S. Lawrence St., Philadelphia.
 The charges allege that Silverman failed to remit $142,548 in fuel use tax and $180,287 in oil franchise tax between June 1991 and January of this year.
 Silverman also allegedly continued to sell fuel after his fuel use tax license was revoked by the Department of Revenue, according to the complaint.
 Silverman is charged with 12 counts of failure to remit oil franchise tax; seven counts of failure to remit fuel use tax; three counts of failure to file oil franchise tax returns, and one count each of failure to file fuel tax returns, failure to surrender fuel use tax license and operating without a dealer-user's license.
 Preate said the charges are based on evidence developed by the Revenue Department's Criminal Tax Investigation Division.
 The complaint was filed with Harrisburg District Justice Horace A. Lowery. He will issue a summons ordering Silverman to appear before him for a preliminary hearing at a later date.
