— A second Wells Fargo in Rock Hill employee has been accused of stealing money from the branch three weeks after a federal grand jury indicted her alleged co-conspirator in an embezzlement scheme, according to a federal indictment.

A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted Tina Shaneka Hall, 33, of Rock Hill, charging her with theft by a bank employee and criminal conspiracy, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbia.

Between last summer and December, Hall and Catawba’s Dionna Shawnte Lowery, 25, conspired to remove $100 and $50 bills from the bank and replace the bills with $1 bills, according to the indictment. They both worked at the remote banking drive-thru branch of Wells Fargo on Cherry Road.

Together, they’re accused of taking more than $1,000 belonging to the bank. If convicted, Hall could face a maximum 30 years in prison, the news release states.

Lowery was indicted late last month.
