Teller accused of stealing $45,000 from Bank of Castile in Le Roy

posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy.

mug_tracy_smith.jpgA 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.

The classic bank teller complex; working for low hourly wages and handeling large amounts of customer's cash, suddenly the ideal that a percentage of the money really belongs to them. Common in any cash base business.
I run Banks and let me tell you, this is an institution's worst nightmare. I agree with you both. I hope all of the customers get thier money back!

Just awful! How does someone justify this? Or think they can get away with it?! I can't even fathom...

The real tragedy in this story is the family of the accused thru sports at my children’s school I have come to know her boy and for him to have this happen in his last few months of high school is horrific in the end what ever punishment is given to her is not near enough. The worse crime is what she has done to her child.
