Llano Woman Sentenced to Three Years in Federal Prison for Stealing Over $900,000 from Local Bank

In San Antonio, 45-year-old Kelley Ranae Jones was sentenced to three years in federal prison for stealing over $900,000 from her employer, the Arrowhead Bank in Llano, TX, announced U.S. Attorney John F. Bash and FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs.

Yesterday afternoon, U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez sentenced Jones to the prison term followed by five years of supervised release and ordered that she pay $905,372.49 in restitution to the bank.
