HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) - A former manager at a West St. Paul bank branch is accused of stealing more than $640,000 from a customer’s account.

Cynthia Marie Van DuSartz of Eagan was charged Tuesday in Dakota County District Court with four counts of theft by swindle. She’s accused of transferring money from the customer’s account into a line of credit account she opened in 2005 over a nearly two-year period beginning in March 2014.

A criminal complaint says Anchor Bank in West St. Paul suspects Van DuSartz also victimized other customers.

Van DuSartz declined to give a statement to investigators after she surrendered to police Saturday. She declined to comment Wednesday to the Star Tribune.

Anchor Bank President Jeff Hawkins said no customers would lose money and the bank wouldn’t be materially affected.
