former brinks employee Charged With stealing $110,000 from bank of america
Tanika Victoria Little, 33, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was charged today by Indictment with two counts of bank theft. The Indictment alleges that on or about February 15, 2011 and again on March 1, 2011, Little, an employee of Brink’s Inc., an armored truck company, whose responsibilities were to deliver cash to Bank of America branches in the Philadelphia area, came into possession of incorrectly routed bags of cash totaling approximately $110,000 in $20 denominations. After failing to deliver the bags of cash to Bank of America’s Drexel Hill branch on these two dates, Little began to make deposits into her personal bank accounts in $20 denominations.
The Indictment further alleges that Little, whose annual income from Brink’s was approximately $41,000 at the time, deposited approximately $41,840 in cash in $20 denominations into three different bank accounts between March 2, 2011 and June 1, 2011. In addition, on June 29, 2011, within an eight-hour period of time, Little purchased 27 money orders, totaling approximately $13,000, with cash from eight different retail establishments in South Philadelphia, PA.
If convicted, Little faces a maximum possible sentence of 60 years imprisonment, a three-year term of supervised release, a $2,000,000 fine, and a $200 special assessment.
The case was investigated by United States Secret Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anita Eve.
