(Council Bluffs) A former Shenandoah woman was sentenced Wednesday for theft by a bank employee.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa says 40-year-old Tiffany Ann Stanley, of Tarkio, Missouri, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Stephanie Rose to four months in prison, followed by four months of home confinement and four years of supervised release.
On June 6, 2013, Stanley pled guilty to the charge which was the result of an investigation conducted into a reported bank robbery of the Great Western Bank of Riverton, Iowa. On November 17, 2012, Stanley reported to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, that she was forced to give money to a male robber. The investigation showed that Stanley was not robbed, but reported the robbery to cover her stealing of bank funds during the course of her employment as a teller.
As part of her sentence, Stanley was ordered to pay $25,166.40 in restitution to the Great Western Bank.
The investigation was conducted by the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa
