PORTLAND (AP) – A man accused of bilking investors out of $200,000 is being returned to Maine after his arrest in New Jersey.

Police say 49-year-old Jonathan Rosenbloom was arrested last month in Lebanon Township, N.J., where he was attending his son’s high school play. The food and wine expert was wanted in New Jersey for failure to pay $100,000 in child support.

In Maine, Rosenbloom was accused of enticing two business partners to invest in phony real estate deals in Italy. An indictment also accuses Rosenbloom of persuading two women to contribute to a phony investment club and of using the names of investors to obtain credit cards.
