WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas has charged a man in connection with a multi-state investigation into Jayhawk Beverage Distributors in Wichita.

The Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control announced Tuesday that an operation targeting the company’s warehouse in Wichita recovered about $70,000 worth of contraband and evidence. The company had been based in Pittsburg, Kansas, before moving to Wichita.

James “Jimmy” A. Hall was arrested late Friday in Wichita. He faces Shawnee County charges including forgery, identity theft, making false information, obtaining a liquor license by fraud, and purchase and distribution of liquor without a license.

Online records do not indicate whether Hall has an attorney, and the Alcoholic Beverage Control said the agency did not know whether he had a defense attorney.

The investigation involved law enforcement agencies in Kansas, California and Florida.
