FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Nov. 27, 2012

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A former bank teller in Kansas City, Kan., has been sentenced to 10 months home detention for embezzling more than $27,000 from the bank where she worked, U.S. Barry Grissom said today. After detention, she will serve two years supervised release.

Brittney L. Crane, 23, Kansas City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of bank embezzlement. In her plea, Crane admitted she committed the crime while she was working as a teller at a US Bank branch at 10959 Parallel in Kansas City, Kan.

With the assistance of another woman, Crane processed forged counter withdrawal slips totaling $27,700. On Sept. 29, 2011, Crane processed a counter withdrawal with a forged US Bank withdrawal slip. The transaction took place when another woman driving a blue, four-door Oldsmobile went through the drive-thru teller. The transaction was captured in a video recording. Crane and the other woman met later in the day to split up the money.

Co-defendant Cierra M. Clayborn, 20, Kansas City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of bank embezzlement. She is set for sentencing Dec. 3.

Grissom commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Martin for their work on the case.
