Former Bank Employee Charged
Tuesday, 01 April 2014

April 1--  A year after her theft was discovered, the U.S. Attorney in the Souhern District of Georgia is charging a Vidalia woman with stealing more than a quarter-million dollars from Altamaha Bank and Trust in Vidalia. 

Vidalia police were called to the bank's operations center on March 13, 2013 when a supervisor found that employee Becky Ann King was electronically transferring money from the bank's general ledger account into personal checking and savings accounts she controlled.

According to police, King admitted to bank officials that she took the money and was asked to leave the building.

The federal charge says the thefts started in November, 2007.  King is accused of at least a hundred transfers which totaled $250,636.73.

She is expected to enter a guilty plea at a hearing before Senior Judge Dudley Bowen in Dublin.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office says a pre-sentencing investigation will be conducted after the hearing before Judge Bowen passes sentence.

She is charged with Theft, Embezzlement or Misapplication of funds by a bank employee.
