Harris County Assistant Treasurer Has Been Charged With Felony Theft

Lueb was arrested Thursday night for stealing more than $35,000

Lt. Mauro Alvarado joins Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg to announce arrest of county treasurer’s office employee on theft charges.
Gregory Lueb, 56, was charged with theft.

The second in command of the Harris County Treasurer’s Office, Gregory Wayne Lueb, is accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from a county credit union to pay a dominatrix who was blackmailing him.

Lueb was arrested Thursday, April 5, and charged with felony theft of up to $30,000. Prosecutors said the 56-year-old was fired from the treasurer’s office this week.

A court document said he texted with a woman he met online. Lueb told investigators they had a submissive relationship and the woman eventually demanded money and threatened to tell his wife.

Prosecutors said he obtained cash advances from the credit union while making fraudulent deposits.

A Harris County district attorney’s spokesman said the dominatrix hasn’t been identified but the investigation continues. Lueb’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call.
