Glencoe Theft By Swindle 01 Feb 13

A former Glencoe businessman accused of swindling lenders out of hundreds of thousands of dollars made an appearance in court recently, and a new court date has now been set. 48-year-old Bryan Koepp has been charged with 8 counts of felony theft by swindle in McLeod County Court over allegations that obtained over $388,000 in loans through false representation while he was the owner of the Glencoe Garden Center. The crimes reportedly occurred over a 19-month period, and involved 45 different victims. An evidentiary hearing for Koepp has been set for March 11th in order to give his attorney time to review the more than 1-thousand pages of evidence in the case. Koepp’s trial is then set to start on April 9th. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
