ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque woman who formerly worked at a bank has pleaded not guilty to charges of embezzlement and identity theft.

Prosecutors say 37-year-old Angela Giddings was arraigned Thursday and released under pretrial services supervision pending trial, which has yet to be scheduled.

An indictment charges Giddings with 12 counts of embezzlement by a bank employee, six counts of embezzlement from tribal organizations and four counts of aggravated identity theft.

She allegedly committed the offenses in New Mexico’s Bernalillo County between February 2013 and July 2014.

At the time, Giddings was employed as a customer services manager for Bank of the West.

Prosecutors say she allegedly withdrew and transferred funds ranging from $15,000 to $60,000 from the accounts of customers without authorization and for her own use.
