TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former teller has been indicted on charges of embezzling about $700,000 from an eastern Kansas bank.

The U.S. attorney’s office announced Wednesday that 47-year-old Denise Christy, of Burlington, faces charges that include embezzlement and money laundering. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

The indictment alleges the crimes were committed while Christy worked for the Burlington branch of Central National Bank. One of Christy’s duties was to sell cash in the bank’s vault to the Federal Reserve Bank.

In May 2014 auditors determined that more than $700,000 was missing. An investigation showed Christy falsified bank records to cover up the embezzlement.

Christy is accused of spending more than $77,000 in embezzled funds to pay off loans.
