SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The operator of a janitorial service that cleaned the Alamodome has been convicted in an invoice scam that led to more than $500,000 in overcharges.

Federal investigators say 54-year-old Geoffrey Comstock was convicted Wednesday in San Antonio of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and six counts of wire fraud.

The case involves the Alamodome, a multipurpose domed sports and special events facility operated by the city of San Antonio.

Authorities say Comstock owns the Frio Nevado (FREE’-oh nuh-VAY’-doh) Corp. and had an Alamodome janitorial contract from 2002 to 2016. Investigators say bogus invoices, submitted since mid-2014, were paid by the city.

Comstock faces up to 20 years in federal prison on each count.
