Federal prosecutors say 54-year-old Luis Enrique Damazo pleaded guilty Friday to mail fraud.

Prosecutors say he ordered replacement parts through a company he secretly operated from 2009 to 2015. He used the company to prepare phony order forms and invoices that showed purchases purportedly made on behalf of Dexter Field Services for equipment, parts and tools.
