Rock Hill bank employee accused of stealing more than $1,000 from branch

From staff reportsMay 23, 2013 

A Wells Fargo employee stole more than $1,000 from one of the bank’s Rock Hill branches, according a federal indictment.

A federal grand jury indicted Dionna Shawntae Lowery, 25, on charges of theft by a bank employee and criminal conspiracy, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbia. If convicted, Lowery could be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison and fined up to $1 million.

The indictment says Lowery conspired with another employee to steal the money. Both worked at the remote drive-through branch at 742 Cherry Road. Between summer 2012 and December 2012, the two employees removed bills from $100 and $50 stacks of currency and replaced them with $1 bills, according to the indictment.

The other employee will be charged “elsewhere,” according to the federal indictment.
