Garegin Spartalyan, 40, Aram Martirosian, 34, Hayk Dzhandzhapanyan, 40, and Davit Kudugulyan, 42 were charged in 426-count indictment with money laundering in the second degree, criminal possession of stolen property in the second degree, grand larceny in the second and third degree, criminal possession of a forgery device, and criminal possession of forged instruments in the second degree, according to a prepared statement from the District Attorney’s Office of New York County.

Sgt. Jason Fetner and Investigator Chad McDonald with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office played a crucial part in assisting the New York City attorney’s office in the case, and Fetner traveled to New York City to testify before the grand jury.
