Ohioan accused of defrauding credit union of $2.3M

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Federal authorities say a Cleveland-area man accused of defrauding a now-failed credit union out of $2.3 million has been indicted on charges including four counts of money laundering.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 51-year-old John Struna of Concord Township also faces single counts of bank fraud, making false statements and conspiracy to commit bank fraud.

The FBI alleges Struna willfully overdrew his accounts with Cleveland-based Taupa Lithuanian Credit Union.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Struna has an attorney. A message was left after business hours today for an attorney who previously represented him in a related case.

The state and the National Credit Union Administration took over the credit union last year.

Prosecutors say Taupa’s CEO is among several people who’ve been convicted for roles in defrauding the credit union.
