Fenton business owner indicted for fraud

 ST. LOUIS (AP) - The owner of a Fenton payroll services company has been indicted on felony mail fraud and money laundering charges involving his clients' unpaid taxes.
 
Bradley Ferguson of Paymaster Business Solutions is accused of withdrawing money from his business clients' banks accounts since 2005 to pay federal, state and local taxes, but not paying those debts.
 
He then withdrew more than $2.7 million from client accounts over the last six months of 2013 in an attempt to cover the tax payments after IRS inquiries.
 
The Washington, Mo. resident was indicted Wednesday in federal court in St. Louis. He is also accused of shredding client records. He faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and fines up to $250,000, as well as possible restitution payments.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two St. Louis officials are facing federal charges that they stole nearly a half million dollars in city funds over the past eight years.

A federal grand jury indicted 43-year-old Thomas "Dan" Stritzel, the city's chief park ranger, and 55-year-old deputy parks commissioner Joseph Vacca.

The indictment released Thursday accuses each man of three mail-fraud counts, alleging they men used various schemes to spend the stolen money on vehicle leases, credit card bills and other expenses.

A message was left Thursday with Stritzel's attorney, Scott Rosenblum. Online court records don't show whether Vacca has legal counsel, and he doesn't have a listed telephone number.

Maggie Crane, a spokeswoman for Mayor Francis Slay, says the two defendants are being placed on forced, unpaid leave, pending disciplinary proceedings.
