FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BANK MANAGER SENTENCED FOR EMBEZZLING BANK FUNDS
Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis sentenced Joseph Monroe Green, Jr., age 36, of Abingdon, Maryland today to 21 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for embezzling bank funds, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Davis also ordered that Green pay restitution of $151,774, the amount still owed after a partial payment by Green.
According to his guilty plea, Green was the manager for the Chevy Chase Bank branch located at 1734 York Road, Lutherville, Maryland. The bank’s reconciliation department discovered discrepancies between amounts of money Green, as manager, had withdrawn from the vault and amounts he had turned over to the Dunbar armored car company. In interviews with bank officials and the FBI, Green admitted that he altered the vault settlement receipts and Dunbar bank deposit tickets from the bank during 2005 to conceal his thefts. Green removed cash from the bank’s mini-vault by hiding it in his pants or work apron. From December 9, 2004 to September 22, 2005, Green embezzled money on 56 occasions, stealing a total of $162,974.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their investigative work, and commended Assistant United States Attorney Joyce K. McDonald, who prosecuted the case.
