DOUGLAS COUNTY, Nev. (AP) - A man living in Nevada but wanted for several months in Utah on charges of fraud has been arrested.

Sgt. Pat Brooks of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Mark Neuhaus was arrested Sunday and remained in custody in Nevada. The 60-year-old called police to report suspicious people his home near Lake Tahoe.

That’s when Brooks says officers discovered his arrest warrant stemming from charges in Salt Lake City.

Court records show Neuhaus faces eight second-degree felony charges filed in February for theft, money laundering and communications fraud.

The Deseret News reports Neuhaus is accused of defrauding Utah Crossing out of tens of thousands of dollars by promising financing for the company that wanted to build a bridge across Utah Lake.

No attorney is listed for Neuhaus in court records.
