ST. PAUL, Minnesota - A 51-year-old Corcoran, Minnesota man who stole more than $2.1 million and bought an island with the money was found guilty Tuesday.
The FBI says Ronald David Johnson falsely promised North Dakota oil boom investors they would make money from the construction of an indoor RV park for workers on the Bakken oil field.
A federal jury convicted Johnson of nine counts of wire fraud and one count of money laundering, according to a story by the Duluth News Tribune.
Johnson took money from four investors for his indoor RV park idea, including a former girlfriend and his church pastor, according to a court statement.
