The former owner of the River House hotel in downtown Evansville has been indicted by a federal grand jury on 10 counts of bank fraud and three counts of wire fraud.
U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett says Todd Van Natta is accused of using false tax returns and bank statements to obtain the loans between March 2007 and continuing until 2009, including $3.8 million used to purchase the River House in November 2007.
The Seymour, Ind., businessman was detained in March after the government filed a criminal complaint after an investigation by the FBI and IRS. He is being held in Henderson, Ky. A message seeking comment was left for his attorney, William Marsh, at his office Saturday by The Associated Press.
