SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A former Wells Fargo Bank teller is facing a federal charge of conspiracy after prosecutors say she used a bank customer’s stolen personal information to withdraw thousands of dollars from the customer’s bank account.

Prosecutors say Shameca Maxwell was a teller at a Wells Fargo branch in Savannah when she worked with an unnamed conspirator to obtain the customer’s bank account and driver license numbers.

Authorities say Maxwell then withdrew more than $12,000 from the customer’s account in a series of transactions in January and February and converted part of the cash to her own use.

Recently filed court records show that Maxwell was charged with conspiracy in U.S. District Court. Her Savannah attorney declined to comment on the case Monday.
