Another major Ponzi case appears to be brewing — this one in Pennsylvania, where federal agents were seen carting boxes from the Wilkes-Barre office of attorney Anthony Lupas.

Lupas, the former solicitor of the Wilkes-Barre School District, is 77. He now joins a number of alleged swindlers over the age of 65 implicated in fraud schemes nationwide involving millions of dollars.

The office of U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith of the Middle District of Pennsylvania confirmed the arrest of Lupas, who was ordered at his first court appearance placed under “house arrest” with electronic monitoring, prosecutors said.

Senior U.S. District Judge James M. Munley presided over the arraignment in Scranton. Lupas also was ordered to surrender his passport.

Agents from the U.S. Secret Service and the IRS are conducting the probe.
