FBI launches bill­board cam­paign to find man charged in mail fraud case

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND NATION & WORLD -

The FBI launched a bill­board cam­paign Wed­nes­day to track down a Lutherville man who is wanted in an al­leged $50 mil­lion mail fraud scheme. Brian Keith Wallen, 52, is one of two men named in a fed­eral in­dict­ment un­sealed Wed­nes­day. The June in­dict­ment al­leges that Wallen was the CEO of com­pa­nies that shipped un­wanted items such as light bulbs and clean­ing sup­plies to busi­nesses at ex­or­bi­tant prices. The FBI is of­fer­ing a $5,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the ar­rest of Wallen. Bill­boards went up Wed­nes­day along the In­ter­state 95 cor­ri­dor from Bal­ti­more to Mi­ami, said As­sis­tant Spe­cial Agent in Charge Scott Hinck­ley of the FBI’s Bal­ti­more of­fice. Also named in the in­dict­ment is An­drew Stafford, 56, of Bel Air. He was ar­rested Wed­nes­day morn­ing, Hinck­ley said. Both Wallen and Stafford face charges of mail fraud and con­spir­acy to com­mit mail fraud. Stafford does not have a lawyer listed in fed­eral court records for the case. The in­dict­ment al­leges he con­spired with Wallen and served as pres­i­dent of the com­pany that sent the un­wanted sup­plies to busi­nesses.
