(KMOV) -- A local bank employee pleaded guilty to charges of embezzlement Friday.
Sandra Geimer pleaded guilty to charges of embezzling more than $80,000 from customer accounts at Commerce Bank between August 2007 and September 2009, according to a release from the U.S. Attourney's Office.
According to court documents, Geimer worked as a teller supervisor at Commerce Bank at the Tesson Ferry Branch location in St. Louis County. She was routinely involved with customers and had access to their accounts, and she fraudulently withdrew, transferred and disbursed funds without the customer's consent.
Some of the victims were elderly or disabled. Geimer also would transfer money between accounts to cover up her fraudulent activities.
Geimer plead guilty to one felony count of theft by a bank employee. Bank theft carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and up to a $1 million fine.
