The home of a former chiropractor and his business was searched during an fraud investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation Special Investigation Division Thursday.

Investigators searched Vince DeNittis Jr. home in Chagrin Falls and the Southeast Chiropractic & Physical Therapy Center in Warrensville Heights, which he owns.

DeNittis was a BWC provider but lost his certification and gave up his Ohio license to practice in 2003 when he was convicted of insurance and workers' compensation fraud, according to a news release from the BWC.

Officials received a tip that DeNittis was still managing chiropractic clinics including the Euclid Chiropractic & Therapy Center in Euclid, the Northwest Chiropractic & Therapy Center and the Broadway Chiropractic & Therapy Center, both in Cleveland. He is believed to be a majority owner of all three, according to the BWC.
