From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on 4/24/13:

Head teller from Troy Hill charged with embezzlement
By Rich Lord

A Troy Hill woman used her position at a bank to shift funds through a relative's account and into her own, according to an indictment accusing her of embezzlement and making false entries.

Diana Phillips, 39, was an assistant branch manager and head teller for a First National Bank branch, according to the indictment posted to the U.S. District Court docket today. She is accused of creating fictitious ledger entries to cover up transfers into an unnamed relative's holiday account. She then moved the money, totaling $129,318, into her account and that of her husband, according to the indictment.

If convicted, she should be ordered to forfeit the proceeds, according to the indictment.
