West Monroe Man Convicted Of Bank Fraud
MONROE, La. –United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced that a federal jury found Glen A. “Andy” Miller, 48, of West Monroe, guilty Wednesday of bank fraud. United States District Judge Robert G. James presided over the trial.
Miller’s trial started Monday and ended Wednesday evening with the jury returning the guilty verdict after deliberating for seven hours. The evidence presented at trial established that from Sept. 24, 2010 until Jan. 25, 2011, Miller, an independent IT contractor, stole $97,413 from a Monroe company, Will Transport, where he was working at the time. Miller stole blank Will Transport company checks, made them payable to himself, and then used the company’s stamp to put signatures on the checks. Miller deposited these checks into his account at Capital One Bank and withdrew the funds shortly thereafter. The trial evidence also revealed that Miller was previously terminated from the city of West Monroe for the fraudulent use of a city issued credit card.
Miller faces 30 years in prison, a $1 million fine, restitution, and five years of supervised release for bank fraud. Sentencing has been set for November 4, 2013.
The U.S. Secret Service conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon B. Brown prosecuted the case.
