BAINBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A grand jury in Geauga County has indicted a local business owner who is accused of using his business to secure loans using forged documents.

Mark Hoehn, 68, of Bainbridge Township, has been indicted on multiple charges, including one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, a first-degree felony, two counts of theft from a person in a protected class, two counts of grand theft, three counts of telecommunications fraud and 28 counts of forgery.

His charges come from a three-month investigation by Bainbridge Township police into numerous financial transactions by Hoehn through his company Odyssey Printware, located on Aurora Road.

He is also accused of securing other loans for his business through a series of unauthorized credit card charges and forged documents that victimized two other area businesses, according to police.

Hoehn is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 4 at 8:30 a.m.
