ANCHORAGE- A 57-year-old Wasilla woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges she defrauded the state of Alaska and lied to the U.S. Department of Agriculture during the operation of the now-defunct Matanuska Creamery.
The indictment also charges Valley Dairy CEO and investor Karen B. Olson with concealing the alleged criminal conduct of the former dairy owner, Kyle Beus.
A grand jury in December indicted Beus on charges he misused federal grant money, and he awaits trial.
Charges against Olson claim she illegally obtained a $430,000 state agriculture department loan for the dairy in 2008. It claims she also presented false documents to the USDA Rural Development program.
