BATH, Maine (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Maine man has been indicted by a grand jury on a charge of embezzling more than $280,000 from a machinists union.

Prosecutors say 34-year-old Ryan Jones, of Bath, is charged with embezzling the money from the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local Lodge S6. They say Jones was an officer in the union at the time.

Jones faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers says it has barred Jones from holding office with the union. The union also says it has filed a claim with a bonding company and expects restitution to be paid back to its members.

A phone call and email to Jones were not immediately returned.
