Tribune photo by Aubrey Woods / A box truck from the Federal Bureau of Investigation sits outside a residence on Beacon Hill Drive south of Seymour on May 26, 2011, where federal and local law enforcement officials were conducting an investigation. According to Jackson County property tax records, the house was owned by Curtis E. Van Natta at the time.
The arrest of a former Seymour man Tuesday on eight counts of bank fraud stems from a federal investigation that shows he borrowed nearly $10 million based upon his father’s tax returns and other financial records.
According to the probable cause affidavit filed in federal court on March 16, Todd A. Van Natta, 35, used those loans to buy rental properties in Seymour, North Vernon, Evansville and Fort Wayne, as well as a yacht and an airplane.
Special Agent Russell L. Warlick with the Bloomington FBI office said Curtis Van Natta said in an interview his son would present a property to him and convince him it was a good idea to buy the property.
