Former Lehi Public Official Charged in $800K Fraud Case

LEHI, Utah (The Salt Lake Tribune) — A former Lehi City public works chief has been charged with multiple felonies after prosecutors accuse him of allegedly stealing $800,000 from the northern Utah city through fraudulent charges paid to his cousin’s company. The Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday that 42-year-old former Lehi City Streets superintendent Wade Allred was charged with 15 felonies related to theft, communications fraud, money laundering and witness tampering. Prosecutors say Allred’s cousin received money through his company Vinco for building materials used by the streets department, but the department never received the materials. Allred’s attorney Brett Anderson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
