Former Museum Director Max Ary Faces Eight New Allegations
Criminal charges are piling up on the man who once ran the
Kansas Cosmosphere & Space Center. Max Ary is now accused not
only of stealing and selling museum artifacts, but of wire fraud
and money laundering.
In all, a federal grand jury in Wichita, KS,
indicted Ary on eight charges Wednesday, adding to the eleven he
Ary helped create the museum more than 25-years ago. He left his
job and Wichita in 2002, moving to Oklahoma City, OK, where he's
now the executive director of the Kirkpatrick Science and Air Space
Museum. Court records obtained by the Wichita Eagle show his home
there was searched in December, 2003 -- investigators saying they
found items like an instrument dial from Apollo 11's command
module, gold foil from the command module on Apollo 8, along with
other materials like charts and medallions.
Ary, 55, says he's not guilty and wants a speedy
trial to clear his name.
