CU employee tip leads to theft bust of public official

Police say an assistant county treasurer in Texas stole CU funds to pay off a dominatrix mistress.

A credit union employee alerted police that a Texas public official allegedly stole more than $35,000 to pay off a blackmailing dominatrix mistress.

Gregory Lueb, 56, a former Harris County first assistant treasurer was charged with felony theft last week, according to Harris County prosecutors in Houston. He appeared in court on Tuesday and did not enter a plea.

In September 2017, Rhonda White, a collections manager for the $162 million Harris County Federal Credit Union in Houston, reported a suspected credit card fraud scheme to the Harris County Sheriff’s office, which launched an investigation.

Lueb, a credit union member, opened a credit card account with HCFCU in September 2016.
