Suntrust Bank Employee Sentenced For Stealing Nearly $172,000 From A Bank Customer

Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Carlos E. Mendoza has sentenced Reginald Green II (36, Orlando) to 23 months in federal prison for theft and embezzlement of client funds by a bank employee. A jury had found Green guilty on December 6, 2018.

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 the United States Postal Inspection Service and the United States Secret Service. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sean P. Shecter.
