Jason Lei

Deputy Sheriffs' Treasurer in California Accused of Theft; Goes on the Lam

deputy sheriff's badgePolice in Hollister, California want to know where Jason Lei is. Quite a few other people, in fact, want to know. Lei, a former sheriff's deputy in San Benito County (south of San Jose), sometime during or prior to May took flight following charges that he'd embezzled funds from the deputy sheriffs' union where he served as treasurer. Early in the morning of May 14, Hollister police attempted to serve Lei with search and arrest warrants at his home in connection with an ongoing investigation. He wasn't there, but cops did find evidence of a crime along with Lei's personal property.
