Fugitive US bank fraud suspect in custody after traffic arrest
ATLANTA (REUTERS) - A Georgia banker who left a suicide note and vanished after being accused of embezzling US$21 million (S$26.6 million) in investors' funds has been arrested by police 18 months following his disappearance.
Sheriff's deputies captured Aubrey Lee Price, 47, during a traffic stop on Interstate 95 near Brunswick, Georgia, on Tuesday after noticing the windows of his Dodge pickup were tinted too darkly, Glynn County Sheriff E. Neal Jump said.
Price disappeared soon before his indictment on one count of bank fraud in July 2012 and left behind a written confession and a note for family and friends saying he planned to kill himself, authorities said.
When he was discovered earlier this week, he had several identification cards in his truck and failed to say which one correctly identified him, Jump said. "The gentleman's story just didn't add up," the sheriff said.
