Potato-buyer charged with fraud

STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) The owner of a potato brokerage is charged with fraud for not paying several farms in the area for their crops. Thomas Lundgren, the owner of Spud City Sales, allegedly owes the farmers three-quarters-of-a-million dollars. His company's storefront in Stevens Point is closed.

Another farm in Ohio has asked that federal charges be filed under agricultural fraud statutes. They claim they're owed another $120,000.

Many of the impacted farms say not being paid for crops that were delivered in 2011 and 2012 will have an impact on this growing season, since money from previous years is used for seed and other supplies.

Lundgren is free on $25,000 bond. He'll be back in court on April 1st for a preliminary hearing.
