Orlando, Florida – United States Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announces that a federal jury has found Reginald Green, II (36, Orlando) guilty of five counts of theft or embezzlement by a bank employee. Green faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in federal prison on each count. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for February 22, 2019. 

According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, between 2011 and 2018, Green, a SunTrust Bank employee, stole more than $171,000 from a bank customer. Green withdrew more funds then the bank client had authorized, he then directed the extra funds into several different bank accounts that he controlled. At different times during the scheme, Green took the stolen funds to pay down his own mortgage and auto loans. Upon discovering the theft, in April 2018, SunTrust immediately fired Green and reimbursed the bank customer for the stolen funds.

This case was investigated by United States Postal Inspection Service and the United States Secret Service. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Sean P. Shecter and Kara Wick.
