A federal grand jury has indicted the Tanana city manager and city expediter on federal fraud charges.
That's according to documents unsealed Tuesday by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
57 year old City Manager Alfred "Bear" Ketzler, and 62 year old Alfred McQuestion Fabian, the City Expediter, are both accused of taking almost one million dollars in excess federal property
and selling it for personal gain in the Fairbanks area.
The 13-count indictment says the two "obtained property from the federal government, mostly heavy construction equipment, on behalf of the city of Tanana between 2009 and 2012 and
sold it at a discount to Fairbanks residents.
Both men are charged with nine counts of wire fraud and four counts of theft from local government.
This is a developing story.
