The Secret Service has seized about $5.6 million and two cars from a Camden County accountant who died in a 2016 boating accident in Georgia.
The federal complaint alleges that Raymond Hutchins stole $12 million through wire fraud and money-lending schemes from three of his clients.
The CL Baker Trust lost $6.5 million, the Wallace Joint Trust lost $2.6 million and the RL Kirk Trust lost $2.8 million.
Hutchins was 58 years old when he and his wife Laura drowned in St Andrews Sound after their pontoon boat capsized, apparently during a thunderstorm.
It’s unclear if the Secret Service will return the assets it seized to the three trust funds.
