A banker wanted for $21 million wire fraud who fooled many into believing he had committed suicide in 2012 has been arrested in south Georgia. Authorities say Aubrey Lee Price, 47, was pulled over by police in Brunswick for his vehicle’s illegally tinted windows on Tuesday and after a bit of questioning, they realized who he was. Price, freshly seen in his mug shot with dark shoulder-length hair and facial hair — a stark contrast from his previous squeaky-clean image — told family he planned to kill himself by leaping from a boat in the Florida Keys 18 months ago. The suicide claim came after he was accused of defrauding Montgomery Bank & Trust in Ailey of the millions while serving as a director…Price left his home in south Georgia on June 16, 2012, telling his family he was headed to Guatemala for business, authorities have said. Two days later, Price’s family and acquaintances received letters saying he was going to Key West to board a ferry headed to Fort Meyers and planned to jump off somewhere along the way to end his life.
Price then opened brokerage accounts through a securities clearing and custodial firm in New York and told bank managers he would invest in U.S. Treasury securities. Instead of investing the bank’s money, authorities say Price wired the funds into accounts he controlled at other financial institutions and provided bank managers with fraudulent documents. Price lived with his wife and children in Bradenton, Fla., but bought a home in Valdosta in the months before his disappearance, according to authorities. Price had moved his family to the south Georgia city, where his wife’s parents lived, just a few weeks before he disappeared.
