NASHVILLE – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for two Wilson County men in connection to a theft and money laundering investigation.
At the request of 15th District Attorney General Tommy Thompson, TBI Agents began investigating the whereabouts of approximately $60,000, mistakenly deposited by a local bank into the account of Brian Keith Lynn. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that Lynn, upon discovering the banking error, began withdrawing and spending the funds. The investigation further revealed Lynn, with the assistance of attorney Harry A. Christensen, laundered a significant portion of the funds through Christensen’s law firm. Agents subsequently developed information that Christensen accepted a portion of the funds as payment for laundering the money. At the time of this release, neither man has made any attempt return any of the funds to the bank.
On Monday, the Wilson County Grand Jury returned indictments, charging Lynn (LEFT BELOW), 46, of Lebanon with one count of Theft over $60,000, one count of Money Laundering, and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Theft over $60,000.
