Two Former Bank Employees Sentenced For Embezzlement, Staged Robbery

Two former bank employees sentenced to five months in federal prison for embezzling and staging a robbery to cover up the theft.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Thursday that 32 year old Amber Gutierrez and 29 year old Ashley Cravens, both from Ulysses, each pleaded guilty for embezzling about $84,000 over 2 years from the Western State Bank in Ulysses.
In July 2010 the women took part in a staged robbery, and continued to embezzle another $24,500 from the bank. In addition to five months in prison, the women will have to spend five months in a halfway house.
