Lexington Man Indicted On Federal Charges

A grand jury has indicted a Lexington man on federal fraud charges.

46-year-old James Hammes is charged with wire fraud and money laundering.

Officials say over a five year period, Hammes took nearly five million dollars from the Lexington Pepsi Cola plant and deposited the money into an account that he controlled.

Hammes has been on the run since February. Police have received tips from several areas on where he might be.
