Feds: St. Louis-area fugitive may be in China

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A St. Louis County man wanted on fraud charges may be hard to track down -- federal prosecutors fear he has fled to China.

The suspect, 43-year-old Jie Fei, is accused of defrauding the company he worked for, Hittig Building Products. Prosecutors say Fei was responsible for leasing vehicles for Hittig. But according to a June indictment, at the end of the lease, he sold the vehicles to a used car dealer and kept the money.

Prosecutors say he kept the money from the sale of 38 vehicles.
