Ex-hotel manager surrenders to FBI
by UPI

TUKWILA, Wash. - A former hotel manager in Washington accused of stealing $1.4 million by diverting guest payments into his personal bank account has surrendered to the FBI.

Brian Fleet was charged with embezzling in 2006.

Brian Fleet, 41, had been on the run for more than a year, federal authorities said. He surrendered to the FBI Monday, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported Tuesday.

Fleet allegedly used his position as general manager of the Residence Inn in Tukwila, Wash., to steal checks submitted by month-to-month guests, the newspaper reported.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Norman Barbosa said he doesn't know why Fleet decided to turn himself in to federal agents.

Fleet, who made his first federal court appearance in Seattle Monday, will remain in custody on four counts of wire fraud. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
