Kiel, Wisconsin woman charged with bank embezzlement

A 27-year-old Kiel woman was charged Thursday with stealing more than $5,500 while working as a bank teller at Community Bank & Trust in the Town of Sheboygan.

Megan A. Murray, of 620 12th St., Lot 2A, is charged with one felony count of theft from a financial institution. She faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

According to a criminal complaint, prior to the alleged theft, Murray had applied for a $5,000 loan while working at the bank, though it had not yet been granted.

Last week, the bank performed a routine audit at the branch and found Murray’s teller drawer short $500, with the same amount found in a bottom drawer beneath a coin tray.

Further audit work revealed an additional $5,540 allegedly missing from Murray’s teller drawer for the month of October.

Murray denied stealing the money when questioned by a Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office deputy.
