An investigation by the state Department of Revenue’s Special Investigations Section led to the indictment and surrender of John C. Tune, 44, of Nashville, Tennessee on tax evasion and theft charges.

A Sumner County grand jury indicted Tune last week on 32 felony counts for allegedly failing to file sales tax returns totaling $132,948.70 from November 2006 to June 2009 in connection to Jersey Mike’s Subs in Hendersonville, according to a release from the revenue department.

The indictment also charged Tune with a Felony count of theft of property over $60,000. He surrendered Wednesday to officers with the Sumner County Sheriff's Department.

If convicted, Tune faces a sentence of up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $3,000 for each count of attempted sales tax evasion.

On the theft charge, he faces a maximum of 12 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.
