The four men suspected of stealing financial information from around 70 victims in Coweta County have been indicted in New York City along with nine others.

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.
