GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A man has been indicted on three federal crimes charging him with fraudulently obtaining more than $97,000 for a house he claimed was his primary residence when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.
The indictment filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport says Anthony L. Bryan created a bill of sale to make it appear he owned and lived in a Bay St. Louis house when Katrina hit.
Prosecutors allege that the house was not his primary residence.
The court records did not list an attorney for Bryan. A number listed for him was disconnected.
