'Dead' banker arrested

Gravestones

Dead cats do bounce.

A banker who vanished in an apparent suicide in 2012 and was wanted by the FBI in connection with a $20m wire fraud case has been arrested in Georgia after being pulled over for a minor traffic violation.

The Daily Mail reports that Aubrey Lee Price, 47, was arrested after being stopped for a tinted window violation on Interstate 95 by members of the Glynn County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday.

Officers said that it was clear Price was giving them false information during the stop and they were soon able to determine that he was wanted by the FBI.

His arrest comes more than a year after a Florida judge had declared Price to be legally dead.

Despite the judge's ruling, the FBI had continued to search for him and had offered a reward of up to $20,000 for his capture.

Price is due to make his initial appearance before a federal judge in Brunswick on Thursday.

He disappeared in June 2012 after sending a rambling letter to his family and acquaintances that investigators took to be a confession.
