HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A New York woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pennsylvania with using stolen identity information to steal $138,000 from PNC Bank branches in several states, including $9,000 from two branches in central Pennsylvania.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 26-year-old Njeri Bowen, who was charged last week with conspiracy, bank fraud and identity fraud by a grand jury in Harrisburg.

Federal prosecutors say Bowen worked with others who aren’t named to withdraw the money from 25 branches in Pennsylvania, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia.

Bowen allegedly withdrew $4,500 from each of two PNC branches in State College on July 9, 2013. Investigators say the scam ran from April 2013 until April 2014.

It was not immediately clear whether Bowen was in custody.
