BALTIMORE (AP) - A bank teller who conspired to use customers’ information to order fraudulent checks and steal money their accounts has been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Jayad Zainab Ester Conteh of Glenarden was also ordered to pay more than $36,000 in restitution at sentencing Tuesday in federal court in Baltimore.
