Kentucky woman accused of theft from Tennessee bank

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a western Kentucky woman has been charged with theft from an Obion County bank.

The TBI said a former employee of Farmers Bank in Woodland Mills, 47-year-old April Dee Choate of Hickman, Kentucky, was indicted this month on one count of theft over $60,000. Choate surrendered to authorities and was released on $25,000 bond on Friday.

Federal, state and local investigators began in July looking into a report that cash was missing after a vault audit at the bank.

The TBI said the theft occurred between September 2007 and July.
