Brunswick, Ohio couple accused of embezzlement

A Brunswick couple accused of stealing almost $1 million from National City Bank over several years has been indicted by a federal grand jury on bank fraud. Rebecca Warden, 34, and Steve Warden, 35, were the subjects of an FBI investigation, the U.S. Depart­ment of Justice reported.
Rebecca Warden was employed as a teller for the bank between 1995 and March. Starting in 2006, Steve Warden periodically would visit his wife at the Strongsville bank branch and pretend to conduct legitimate transactions. Rebecca Warden would give her husband cash from her teller drawer, their indictment alleges.
The indictment also alleges Rebecca Warden would use National City’s cash to issue bank checks and money orders payable to her husband’s creditors. She is accused of creating fraudulent transactions on the bank’s teller system to hide the embezzlement.
The DOJ reported National City lost $923,471 due to the Wardens’ alleged transactions.
