Man Indicted In Money Laundering Scam

A Westfield man is being charged in  connection to a money laundering scheme.  

The U.S. Department of Justice  accuses 58-year-old Hanibal Tayeh of laundering money in order to get  bank loans and funding for overseas projects. 

 He's been charged with 17  counts of fraud and money laundering. 

Prosecutors say that at one point Tayeh ran a lab out of Agawam.

Federal officials say Tayeh  obtained an over nine-million dollar loan package and 400 thousand  dollar extension of credit from a bank as part of the scheme.
