Man Wanted For Stealing Millions

The F.B.I. wants to find 46-year old James Hammes of Lexington. They suspect he's in possession of a large sum of money and need the public's help finding him.

A warrant is out Hammes for taking $4.6 million dollars from his former employer. Hammes worked at the Lexington branch of G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers, Inc. as the controller from 2004 to 2009. Authorities say during that time he transferred money to a bank account he controlled, and claimed the money was going to a supplier. The supplier told the F.B.I. they had no knowledge of the scheme.

Hammes is charged with wire fraud and money laundering.

He is described as a white male, 5’8” tall and weighs 195 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with any information on the current whereabouts of Hammes should contact their nearest FBI office.
