Three members of the Wingo family, the founders of Angel Food Ministries, were indicted by federal officials, according to multiple sources.
Pastors Joe, Linda and Andy Wingo and business associate Harry Michaels are facing multiple counts of federal charges stemming from an FBI investigation into business practices at the now-defunct ministry that distributed low-cost food boxes nationwide.
The indictment, which was unsealed Thursday, has yet to be distributed to media outlets.
The three Wingos are expected to turn themselves in to federal authorities in Macon Friday.
Agents with the FBI and representatives of the IRS searched the Broad Street offices of Angel Food and the Alcovy Street offices of Good Hope Foods, owned and operated by Andy Wingo, on Feb. 11, 2009.
