TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka, Kansas, real estate developer has been indicted by federal grand jurors on 103 counts of bankruptcy fraud.

Sixty-four-year-old Kent Lindemuth filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2012, claiming he had more than $3.5 million of debt.

While federal law stipulates that any property obtained after the bankruptcy filing belongs to the bankruptcy estate. But Lindemuth is accused in Wednesday’s indictment of buying more than 100 firearms valued at more than $80,000 from August 2013 to late 2014.

Lindemuth didn’t tell his creditors or the bankruptcy trustee about the firearms or the money used to buy them.

Online court records don’t show whether Lindemuth has an attorney.
