A Concord Township man has received a seven-count federal indictment for defrauding Taupa Lithuanian Credit Union out of $2.3 million, law enforcement officials say.

51-year-old John Struna was indicted on one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, one count of bank fraud, one count of making false statements and four counts of money laundering according to a release from U.S. Attorney for Northern Ohio Steven M. Dettelbach's office. 

Credit Union CEO Alex Spirikaitis, former teller Michael Ruksenas and Vytas Apanavicius have previously been found guilty for for their roles in conspiracies related to defrauding the credit union.

According to the indictment, Struna maintained both personal and corporate accounts at Taupa dating back to 1995. Between 2002 and 2013 with an association with Spirikaitis, 46 fraudulent transfers were made from Taupa into Struna's accounts.

The fraudulent transfers totaled approximately $2.3 million including a $112,105 transfer from Spirikaitis to Struna for the purchase of a condominium in Ft. Myers, Florida, according to the indictment.

The indictment also seeks to forfeit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, a 2014 Mazda 6 and the lost money.
