Aubrey Lee PriceAubrey Lee Price  In June of 2012 former pastor and banker Aubrey Lee Price faked his death after embezzling millions from investors.  He was captured in Georgia 18 months later following a traffic stop.


  Aubrey told Charles Bethea, a freelance reporter for Atlanta Magazine and in several jailhouse interviews, of his life on the run. 


  According to ABC News which released the recordings, Bethea said Price made his way to South America where he  worked for a friend of a friend -- a cocaine trafficker.  He said he did not know his friend was a drug dealer until he saw several employees in s small room putting a white powdery substance into small plastic bag.  He told Bethea he hoped to make money and eventually pay back those people he defrauded.  He learned to make false IDs and has as many as six false names after he returned to the United States.


  December 31, 2013, police in Glynn County, Georgia, pulled over a driver because of a window tint violation.


  After the police discovered a fake license, Price revealed his true identity.


     Price remains jailed in Bulloch County, Georgia. He pleaded guilty in June to three counts of fraud. The plea deal calls for a maximum of 30 years in prison and $51 million in restitution.


  Price released a statement through his father challenging Bethea’s reporting -- and said he remains focused on helping to pay back the investors he defrauded.
