CLEVELAND, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – School trips to DC were cancelled and parents were out some money.

The sudden financial collapse of Mayfield, Ohio-based Discovery Tours in 2018 has led to a federal indictment, meaning charges of fraud and money laundering for former company VP Joe Cipoletti.

Federal investigators say the 45-year-old Hudson man embezzled over $600,000 for his own use.

The Perry Local Schools middle school trip to Washington was one of the cancellations.
