Man lands in jail for buying Lamborghini with government COVID-19 loan ‎

A Texas man, Lee Price III, 29, ‎was on Tuesday jailed by a United States court for using $1.6 million government pandemic aid on a spending spree, including purchase of a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus.

Lee Price III was charged with fraud after he secured two government loans under the Paycheck Protection Program to pay employees he did not have, the Justice Department said in a statement.

Instead he spent the funds on lavish goods like a sports car and a Rolex watch, as well as real estate, an F-350 pickup truck, and thousands of dollars at Houston strip clubs, the statement said.

Price secured two loans: Price Enterprises Holdings allegedly received more than $900,000, while 713 Construction was approved for over $700,000, but neither has employees and “the individual listed as CEO on the 713 Construction loan application died in April 2020, a month before the application was submitted,” according to the complaint.
