LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man already facing prison time for driving a million-dollar car into a lagoon is also facing up to life in prison for allegedly not following through on a deal for another car.
Andy Lee House, 41, has been indicted on first-degree charges of theft and misapplication of fiduciary funds.
According to an indictment, House took $200,000 from someone in order to purchase a 2005 Ford GT. House never provided that vehicle to the purchaser, according to the indictment.
House is already set to serve a year in federal prison after pleading guilty to purposefully driving a 2006 Bugatti Veyron into a Galveston County lagoon in order to collect the insurance.
House turned himself in to the Smith County Jail on the charges on Friday and posted a $100,000 bond.
On the KTRE Facebook page, House posted the following statement:
"Life in prison? Funny these charges were brought on by a corrupt DPS officer and the charges are being dropped due to the fact their was no victim but me."
The post has since been removed. House's attorney said they have no comment at this time on the case.
