Days after a retired police officer gave Brian Reynolds a $25,000 check for his Loudoun newspaper business, Reynolds said he’d lost it and asked for a new one, reports  The Washington Post.

In fact, continued the Post piece, “the check had been seized by the FBI in a search of Reynolds’ office, and he has admitted the Loudoun Tribune project he had been pitching to investors was built on fraudulent documents and lies. The check’s author was one of at least 10 people Reynolds scammed out of more than half a million dollars before his arrest and guilty plea this spring in Alexandria federal court.

“Along with lying to Loudoun Tribune investors, he admitted to doctoring papers to get his gun rights restored.”
