Men Arrested For Laundering Money After Accidental Bank Deposit
LEBANON, Tenn. – Two Wilson County men were arrested on money laundering charges after a bank mistakenly deposited about $60,000 dollars into one of the men’s bank accounts.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agents arrested 46-year-old Brian Keith Lynn and his attorney, 59-year-old Harry A. Christensen.
Agents discovered that a local bank mistakenly deposited about $60,000 in Lynn’s account.
They said when Lynn found out about the money, he spent it then got Christensen to help him launder it.
Investigators said Christensen laundered a large portion of the money through his law firm, and then used a portion as payment for doing so.
Lynn was charged with one count of Theft over $60,000, one count of Money Laundering, and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Theft over $60,000.
Christensen was charged with one count of Theft over $10,000, one count of Money Laundering, and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Theft over $10,000.
The men were arrested Wednesday afternoon and authorities booked the men into the Wilson County Jail on $2,500 bond each.
