North Carolina Bank Employee Charged With $111K Embezzlement
Donna Lewis Cayton, 47, of Beaufort, North Carolina, was recently charged with embezzling $111,075.99 from Branch Banking & Trust branch in Beaufort, where she had been employed. Cayton's alleged theft occurred between December 2003 and August 2008, according to reports. She is currently out on a $10,000 bond. According to investigators, Cayton targeted the accounts of elderly people and would withdraw relatively small increments of $500 or so. If and when customers identified the discrepancy, she was often the one to correct it by taking from another account. We note that her husband, Christan Bruce Cayton passed away on September 22, 2008.
