Members from the San Diego Fugitive Task Force are searching for Francis Leonard. Also known as "Fat Leonard", as he cuts off his GPS monitoring bracelet

Members from the San Diego Fugitive Task Force are searching for Francis Leonard. Also known as "Fat Leonard", he cut off his GPS monitoring bracelet on Sunday morning. Task Force Officers went to his residence and upon arrival noticed the house was now vacant. 


Police officers arrived at his residence after being notified by the agency monitoring the device that there was a problem.

"Upon arrival they noticed that nobody was home," he told news agency AFP.

Neighbours said they had seen moving trucks going in and out of his home in recent weeks, said Mr Castillo, who added that that multiple leads were being investigated.

Mr Francis had been the key figure behind a sprawling multi-million dollar bribery scandal that he operated by way of his Singapore-based company which serviced the US Navy's Pacific fleet.

He was arrested in 2013 and pled guilty in 2015 to offering $500,000 (£434,757) in bribes to US Navy officers in an attempt to funnel official work towards his shipyards.

Prosecutors say he overcharged the Navy to the tune of $35m and plied Navy officers with cash, gourmet meals, expensive cigars, rare liquor and wild sex parties in upscale hotels to procure the contracts.

But a bout of bad health in recent years, including kidney cancer, allowed him to remain under house arrest while acting as a cooperating witness for the prosecution as he awaited sentencing.
