Natasha Hudgeons, a 33-year old Brenham resident and a former Wells Fargo employee has pleaded guilty to a $63k embezzlement.
From December 2014 through March 2019, she embezzled $63,500 while employed as a teller. She took the money in $500 to $1,000 increments. She concealed the theft by putting falsified entries into the bank’s books and records and “selling” back and forth between the cashbox and coin machine cash lines. Both were considered “single control” cash lines, meaning tellers could conduct transactions on that account line without a second person.
She was arrested in September and waived her right to be indicted. She will be sentenced on January 9, 2020. Ms Hudgeons faces up to 30 years in federal prison and a possible $1 million maximum fine.
