The Justice Department cited court documents to say that Lee Price III, 30, who pleaded guilty in September to fraud and money laundering charges, received $1.6 million in PPP loan funding by misappropriating his applications.

Court documents said that on the applications, Price used the name of a person who had died before the documents were submitted.


In the paperwork, he also rigged payroll expenses and the workforce at three different businesses, according to court docs.

The DOJ said Price used some false advantage to buy a Lamborghini Urus, a Ford F-350 truck and a Rolex watch.
