Jay Nolan, a futures trader from the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly defrauding investors. According to the FBI, Mr. Nolan launched his commodity futures hedge fund, Lodge Diversified Fund LP, in 2005. Mr. Nolan allegedly lost most of the money early on and had been sending false reports to investors to hide losses ever since.

According to a statement, an individual known as “Investor A” received an account statement from Lodge Diversified showing at the end of October that his balance was $5,611,901 and the overall fund’s balance was $6,308,409. When Investor A contacted Lodge Diversified’s brokerage firm, he learned that the firm’s overall account had a balanced of just $170,000.
