OKLAHOMA CITY — A former bank teller was arrested after allegedly pocketing hundreds of dollars from customers’ accounts.
Authorities say it happened last week at the First Fidelity Bank on S.W. 29th, near Shartel.
“There had been two customers that had come in with cash deposits. They were pretty large cash deposits,” MSgt. Gary Knight, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said.
In both of those cases, the bank customers were dealing with 20-year-old Brendon Mcbane.
“When the teller counted out the money and was about to give a receipt to the customer, they explained that there was less money than what the customer claimed to have given,” Knight said.
According to the police report, one of the customers handed Mcbane $4,836 cash to be deposited and Mcbane told the customer after he counted the money, the total was $4,786.
The exact same thing happened a few days later.
“As it turns out, the teller was setting some of the cash aside to keep for himself. Bank had surveillance cameras that clearly caught the suspect, the teller there, keeping the money, pocketing the money,” Knight said.
Mcbane was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on embezzlement charges.
