More charges filed in Iowa Film Office investigation

Posted:

DES MOINES (AP) -- The Iowa Attorney General's office says new criminal charges have been filed in the Iowa Film Office case.

The attorney general's office said Thursday the new complaint was filed last week in Polk County District Court. It contains additional charges against defendants named in February, including Wendy Weiner Runge and Matthias Alexander Saunders. The new complaint also contains charges naming Zachary LeBeau, a Minnesota resident and filmmaker.

The complaint contains one count of ongoing criminal conduct against LeBeau, and 11 counts of fraudulent practice in the first degree against Runge, Saunders, and LeBeau.

LeBeau surrendered Thursday at the Polk County Jail and was released on $10,000 bond. There was no change in arrest status for Weiner Runge and Saunders, who have pleaded not guilty and are free on bail bond.
