GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - An investment adviser has been indicted on wire fraud and money laundering charges for allegedly stealing $1.2 million from a client’s account.

An indictment was returned Wednesday against 35-year-old Travis Wetzel of Frederick. Federal prosecutors say Wetzel was arrested on Thursday. Online court records do not list a lawyer for Wetzel.

According to the 24-count indictment, Wetzel worked for an investment advisory firm in Rockville. Prosecutors say Wetzel took $1.2 million from a client’s annuity account without the client’s knowledge and used the money for his personal benefit.
