FARGO, N.D. — A federal grand jury has indicted a Minnesota man for allegedly running an illegal gambling operation in North Dakota.

KFGO radio reports (http://bit.ly/1nc3Jc1 ) a newly unsealed indictment says 68-year-old Gerald Greenfield, of Bloomington, Minnesota, ran an illegal sports betting business for four years, beginning in 2007. Greenfield allegedly received about $10 million each year in wagers and made an annual profit of between $500,000 and $600,000, using computer servers located in Costa Rica.

Greenfield also is accused of illegally transmitting wager information and money laundering. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Greenfield previously was convicted in a mortgage fraud scheme in Minnesota's Twin Cities. He escaped from a minimum-security federal prison in Duluth last year while serving a 50-month sentence and was captured six days later.
