Not guilty plea in Statesboro federal court

Written by  Thursday, 09 January 2014 11:14

Aubrey Lee PriceAubrey Lee Price  The former director of Montgomery Bank and Trust near Vidalia did not speak as his court appointed attorney entered a not guilty plea to stealing more than $20 million in bank assets in 2012, then disappeared for a year and a half.  He left behind a note saying he intended to commit suicide for taking the money.  A court in Florida declared him dead a year ago.  The judge agreed to prosecutor Brian Rafferty’s request to deny Price bill saying he had been a fugitive was considered to be a flight risk.  He will remain in the Bulloch County Jail pending trial preparations.

 

  Price was pulled over by a Glynn County deputy sheriff on Interstate 95 near Brunswick New Year’s Eve because the windows on the truck he was driving had too much window tint.  When he disappeared 18 months ago he had short, blond hair and was clean shaven.  When he appeared in court Wednesday he had dark, shoulder length hair and a beard.

 

  Price told authorities said he worked odd jobs and as a migrant labor during his disappearance.  However, authorities say they found evidence he may have been growing marijuana in a residence under a false name in Ocala, Fla.  Marion County sheriff’s deputies after responding the landlord’s complaint they found 225 pot plants in the home and ID cards with Price’s picture but false names.
