Authorities in the U.S. have found almost $1million in a storage unit belonging to a fugitive accused of running a scam that collected millions in donations from people who believed they were helping U.S. Navy veterans.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the U.S. Marshals Service and investigators from his office found more than $981,650 in cash and birth certificates belonging to the fugitive known as Bobby Thompson.

Thompson founded the bogus charity United States Navy Veterans Association, believed to have collected nearly $2 million in Ohio and tens of millions from donors in 40 other states since 2001.
