Bank employee faces embezzlement, forgery charges in Dickenson County, Virginia

An employee at First Community Bank in Clintwood has been indicted on embezzlement and forgery charges.

Kimberly Cook, of Clintwood, was arrested late last week and charged with three counts of embezzlement under $200 and three counts of forging coin and bank notes, according to online court records. According to the records, the incident which led to her arrest happened in June 2011.

"She's charged with using her position as a bank teller to embezzle money from customers," said Dickenson County Commonwealth's Attorney Joshua Newberry.
Cook's trial has been set for Sept. 12, court records show. She has no prior criminal record in the county.
Ginger Salt, the bank's chief marketing officer, said she couldn't comment on the status of Cook's employment with the bank.
