Tarkio, Missouri Resident Sentenced To Prison For Stealing Bank Funds

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA - On January 22, 2014, Tiffany Ann Stanley, a 40 year old resident of Tarkio, Missouri, previously of Shenandoah, Iowa, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Stephanie Rose to four months in prison, followed by four months of home confinement, and four years of supervised release for theft by a bank employee, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt.

On June 6, 2013, Stanley pled guilty to the charge which was the result of an investigation conducted into a reported bank robbery of the Great Western Bank of Riverton, Iowa. On November 17, 2012, Stanley reported to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, that she was forced to give money to a male robber. The investigation showed that Stanley was not robbed, but reported the robbery to cover her stealing of bank funds during the course of her employment as a teller.

The investigation was conducted by the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
