A federal grand jury in Harrisburg, Penn., has indicted a New Braunfels man on a charge of criminal conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced the indictment of James Pearson, 37, formerly of Montoursville, Penn., following his arrest Tuesday.

According to a news release, Pearson was formerly employed as a warehouse manager by M-I Swaco, a Houston-based supplier of drilling fluid systems with an office in Watsontown, Penn. M-I Swaco provides services and equipment to natural gas drillers in the Marcellus shale region in Central Pennsylvania.
