Federal prosecutors say a Dublin, Georgia man used a pandemic relief loan to buy a $57,000 Pokemon card.

Court records show Vinath Oudomsine is charged with lying on an application for a pandemic economic relief loan about the number of people his business employed and the company’s gross revenue.

He faces one count of wire fraud.

The court filing said he received $85,000 in August of last year, and used $57,789 of it to purchase a rare Pokemon card.
