A 31-year-old Farmington woman swindled $95,000 from the bank where she used to work, according to charges filed Friday in Dakota County District Court.
Leah M. Bremner, former lead teller supervisor at a bank in Lakeville, is charged with felony theft by swindle. She was released on bail and will make her next court appearance July 22.
The criminal complaint said the thefts occurred between May and October 2010. When a bank official confronted Bremner about discrepancies in her paperwork, she admitted stealing the money. She said her husband had recently lost his job and they were having financial problems.
She initially said she took $86,000, although an audit showed that $95,000 wasmissing.
