LOS ANGELES —Authorities announced on Monday the arrest of former airport developer Scot Spencer on charges that he defrauded the San Bernardino International Airport Authority of more than $1 million.

The arrest comes more than three years after a grand jury convened to investigate fraud charges involving business dealings at the airport, and more than two years after the airport’s financial advisor filed a disclosure notice on the Municipal Rulemaking Securities Board’s EMMA website in December 2011 related to the airport’s $161 million of bonds after a search warrant was executed at the airport by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
