Ohio man accused of laundering $311 million in bitcoins through ‘Google of the dark net’
An international tale of money laundering, cryptocurrency and the dark web of illegal guns and drugs may have deep roots in Greater Akron. A Bath, Ohio, resident with a bitcoin-focused business in downtown Akron was secretly indicted by a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., in December for conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, operating an unlicensed money transmitting business and transmitting money without a license, court records show. Larry Dean Harmon, who is in his 30s, was arrested in Akron last Thursday and the indictment was unsealed. If convicted, Harmon could face 14 to 17½ years in prison, according to court records. Federal prosecutors in Ohio asked a judge to keep Harmon in custody, saying he is a flight risk, a jet-set multimillionaire with cryptocurrency he can access anywhere in the world. On Wednesday, a federal judge granted prosecutors’ request to hold Harmon and remanded him to custody in Washington, D.C. https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2020/02/13/bitcoin-larry-dean-harmon-indicted-cryptocurrency-money-laundering-scheme/4746978002/
