A 52-year-old Kenai man will be arraigned Tuesday on theft charges in what prosecutors say was a charity scam.
Frank Roach is charged with creating Alaska Veteran Outreach Boxes for Heroes, which he said would send care packages to deployed soldiers from Alaska.
Prosecutors say that starting in 2010, Roach solicited donations by phone and from retail stores but kept most of the money. Investigators say he raised $140,000 from April 2011 to October 2011.
Clint Campion of the State of Alaska Department of Law tells the Anchorage Daily News that a grand jury indicted Roach on nine counts.
