The case of a Georgia man accused of embezzling millions of dollars now has a new twist.

Aubrey Lee Price was arrested in Brunswick, Ga. after a routine traffic stop on I-95.

CNN reports that after the arrest, police searched a home Price had been renting in Florida. The home was found to be filled with hundreds of marijuana plants.

A neighbor was surprised that the man he knew as "Jason" was accused of criminal activity.

"Jason, he was cool," says Jermain Jackson. "I mean, he come around ask me if I want anything, or do we need anything, but I never suspected this. He was real cool person, real quiet to himself."

Before his arrest, many believed Price was dead, but he had actually been on the run for two years.
