The Utah County Sheriff’s Office executed a second search warrant out of the 4th District Court relating to the case of suspected embezzlement by former Lehi Streets Superintendent, Wade Allred. The warrant dated October 2, 2019 and executed October 3, 2019 allowed authorities to inspect bank records of Vinco Enterprises for the time period between May 12, 2014, and September 23, 2019, representing over a five-year span.

The Utah County Sheriff’s office detective stated in the warrant, “Adam Garth Lake (Wade Allred’s Cousin), the sole owner of Vinco Enterprises, told me, in a face to face interview, that he receives payment in the form of a check from the city of Lehi. He deposits the checks into an account at Zions Bank.”
