Federal arrest warrant issued for Brian Laundrie on bank fraud charges
(WWSB) - A federal arrest warrant has now been issued for Brian Laundrie, according to FBI officials.
This warrant will allow law enforcement to arrest Laundrie, as the FBI and agencies across the nation continue investigating the homicide case of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito, who was found dead in Wyoming Sept. 19.
Officials said, “We urge individuals with knowledge of Mr. Laundrie’s role in this matter or his current whereabouts to contact the FBI.” Instead of a person of interest, he is now wanted for bank fraud. Officials say Laundrie allegedly obtained items valuing around $1,000.
The U.S. District Court of Wyoming issued the federal arrest warrant on Wednesday.
You can read the warrant below:
Laundrie’s attorney, Steven Bertolini, “It is my understanding that the arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie is related to activities occurring after the death of Gabby Petito and not related to her actual demise. The FBI is focusing on locating Brian and when that occurs the specifics of the charges covered under the indictment will be addressed in the proper forum.”
