A federal investigation into a workers' compensation scheme has spread to the Bank of Mingo in southern West Virginia.
Mentioned in the affidavit is Darrin McCormick, a bank branch manager who is also mayor of Williamson.
Neither the bank nor any of its employees has been charged.
McCormick did not immediately return calls seeking comment Tuesday.
The bank's board chairman, Harry Keith White, says the bank is cooperating with authorities and is reviewing procedures in light of the allegations. He says McCormick is on a paid leave of absence.
