ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A teller supervisor at a Commerce Bank branch in St. Louis County has been indicted by a federal grand jury and accused of embezzling more than $80,000 from customer accounts.

The allegations were announced Wednesday against 37-year-old Sandra Geimer of Festus. She faces two felony counts of theft by a bank employee and two counts of aggravated identity theft.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Geimer withdrew money from customer accounts without their consent or knowledge. Prosecutors say several of the customers were elderly or disabled and were not likely to immediately notice the activity.

It wasn't immediately clear if Geimer had an attorney.
