The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has added a man accused of running an investment scheme to its list of Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives after he was indicted on federal charges for mail fraud and theft.
Jeffrey Lynn Cassman, 34, whose last known address is 2132 Academy Way in La Vergne, is wanted by the FBI and Dickson County Sheriff’s Office for mail fraud, securities fraud and three counts of theft.
He was arrested on the theft charges in December of 2007 and was out on bond when he failed to appear in court in 2008.
In February 2010, a federal grand jury indicted Cassman on mail and securities fraud.
Cassman is accused of bilking several victims out of thousands of dollars between January 2003 and November 2005 using an investment scheme.
He, his wife and their nine children have been on the run since 2008.
He has a criminal history that includes driving on a suspended license and passing worthless checks.

He may be in the southwestern United States or out of the country. He is known to carry firearms and speak several languages.
