Strongsville , Ohio bank teller gives cash from drawer to husband

A bank teller was sentenced Tuesday for taking cash from her drawer and giving it to her husband.

Rebecca Warden, a former teller at the National City Bank branch in Strongsville, was
sentenced to 16 months in prison and ordered to pay $888,471 in restitution after previously pleading guilty to bank fraud, Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, said.
Rebecca Warden, 34, of Parma, removed cash from her drawer and gave it
to her husband, Steve Warden, who would come into the bank and pretend to conduct legitimate banking transactions, Dettelbach said.
This took place from on or about 2006 through March 2010, according to
court documents.
During this time period, Rebecca Warden also removed cash to issue official bank checks
and money orders payable to businesses to which Steve Warden owed money.
Steve Warden, 35, of Brunswick, pleaded guilty to bank fraud charges last week
and is scheduled to be sentenced in April.
The investigation was conducted by the FBI.
