Oeltjenbruns was executive vice president of Minnwest Bank South, Tracy, MN.
Oeltjenbruns consented to the order without admitting or denying culpability. The FDIC's action is based on allegations that, between 1997 and 2001, Oeltjenbruns made fictitious loans, falsified bank records and engaged in self dealing.
Under the order, Oeltjenbruns is prohibited from further participation in the banking industry without prior FDIC approval.
The order is attached.
