Woman pleads not guilty to embezzling from Glacier Bank in Montana

A former Glacier Bank employee has pleaded not guilty to theft by embezzlement after allegedly taking $3,100 from the business.

Kristen Kleiv, 27, of Bigfork, entered the plea Thursday in Flathead District Court.
According to a court document, a till allegedly run by Kleiv was reported to be $3,100 short on March 15. An internal investigation at the bank allegedly showed Kleiv had been taking money from her till since Nov. 6, 2012. She had been an employee since October 2012.
During a later interview, Kleiv allegedly admitted taking $20 from her till several months ago, continuing to take more money over the next several months until she was caught. She allegedly admitted taking $3,100 total.
If convicted, Kleiv faces up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $50,000, and restitution to the bank. She is currently released on her own recognizance.
The next hearing in Kleiv’s case is set for Oct. 30.
