Teller accused of stealing $45,000 from Bank of Castile in Le Roy
A 43-year-old teller for Bank of Castile is accused of stealing $45,000 from the Le Roy branch where she worked.
Tracy L. Smith, of 77 Rochester St., Bergen, was arrested by Le Roy Police Detective John Condidorio after a lengthy investigation.
Condidorio says that Smith's alleged thefts began in 2007 when she stole $20,000 from her cash drawer over a period of time. Smith allegedly manipulated the accounting system to cover up the theft.
Then, starting in June 2008 and continuing until December, Smith allegedly forged checks and deposit slips to steal another $25,000.
An alleged attempt by Smith to cover her tracks by removing a $20,000 lump sum from a cash delivery is what caused an investigation into her conduct to begin.
Smith is charged with two counts of grand larceny 3rd and four counts of forgery 2nd.
The Bank of Castile, through the Le Roy Police Department, is asking customers to review bank statements and notify the bank immediately if any unusual activity is found.
Assisting in the investigation was the Buffalo office of the FBI and the Bank of Castile.
Did she do it again? Dated 2010 makes one wonder....
