Former bank teller from McAllen sentenced after pleading guilty in $1.2M theft case
A former bank teller from McAllen has been sentenced after pleading guilty in connection to a $1.2 million theft case.
Jill Marie Myers was sentenced to over two years behind bars and two years of supervised release.
Myers pleaded guilty last year to falsifying bank records to conceal theft of funds over a 10-year period.
Authorities say Myers was the teller supervisor at the Edinburg branch of First National Bank. The scheme was uncovered in mid-2014 after Dallas-based Plains Capital Bank acquired the branch.
An investigation revealed about $10,000 was missing from the vaults, per month, since June 2004.
Prosecutors say the Myers acknowledged creating fraudulent entries in bank records to conceal the theft.
Myers is currently out on bond but she will be ordered to turn herself in to serve her jail sentence.
