SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) - A former bank employee who faked loans to steal from a bank branch in Schuyler has been given probation and been ordered to pay restitution.

Online court records say 38-year-old Diana Sanchez was sentenced Wednesday to 24 months of probation and 100 hours of community service. She’d pleaded no contest to four counts of theft after prosecutors dropped five more counts.

Prosecutors say Sanchez accessed customer information at the Pinnacle Bank branch to create and process loan checks ranging from about $5,000 to $30,000. Court documents say she cashed the checks at the bank and pocketed the money. Documents say the loans totaled nearly $157,000.
