WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - The U.S. attorney’s office for the Northern District of West Virginia says it has brought in nearly $3.5 million through civil and criminal actions in fiscal year 2015.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II says his office collected $1.5 million from criminal actions and $1.3 million from civil actions. It also brought in about $625,000 from civil and criminal asset forfeitures.

Ihlenfeld says his office collected another $4.1 million in civil cases that the state collaborated on with other U.S. attorney’s offices and the Department of Justice.

Ihlenfeld says a “critical aspect of enforcing the federal laws is to recover funds for victims of crimes and taxpayers.”
