An Indiana hedge fund manager stands accused of attempting to break into the home of a client suing him.

William Cantrell was allegedly found passed out on the porch of the California home of a client identified only as “M.S.” He had a crowbar, gloves and a knife, according to police in California, where M.S. lives.

Cantrell ran a hedge fund called the Dragon Fund. According to the indictment against him, he misled M.S. about his background and returns, winning more than $800,000 in investments from her. He has been charged with burglary, stalking and possession of a concealed weapon.
