News 3 is learning new information about Aubrey Lee Price -- the Lyons man accused of embezzling millions of dollars from an Ailey bank.

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office in Florida, Price rented a home where an extensive marijuana growing operation was discovered on New Year's Day.

According to the police report, the owner of the property went by to check on the place and told officers that he saw several marijuana plants growing in the garage.

There was also a single-wide mobile home on the property and a detached garage that the property owner said had plants that looked like marijuana growing inside as well as several bright lights.

During a search of the property, authorities seized 225 marijuana plants from the mobile home and garage, the police report said.

The report also said that the property owner knew Price as "Jason."

Price appeared in Federal Court Thursday morning in Brunswick on a bank fraud charge.

He is due to be arraigned on Monday in Savannah.

If convicted, Price could be fined up to a million dollars and spend 30 years in prison.
