CAUTION

James T. Hammes is wanted for an alleged fraud scheme he conducted while employed as controller for the Lexington, Kentucky, division of a Cincinnati-based company. As controller, he was responsible for all financial accounting and internal controls for the Lexington division. Between 2004 and 2009, Hammes allegedly deposited approximately $8.7 million of company funds into a bank account in the name of a second company doing business with his employer, but which Hammes had signatory control over.

On February 24, 2009, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Southern District of Ohio, after Hammes was charged with wire fraud and money laundering.
