HAVRE, Mont. (AP) - A Havre bank teller has been charged with embezzling nearly $130,000 from her employer over several years.

The Havre Daily News reported Tuesday (https://bit.ly/2avtFyy) that Peggy Teel acknowledged the theft to police.

Teel, who worked as head teller at Bear Paw Credit Union, is charged with one felony count of theft by embezzlement.

She’s set to enter a plea at a state District Court hearing on Aug. 15.

Charging documents say Teel told police that she stole in small amounts from fellow tellers’ cash drawers as well as a bank ATM.



The documents say that Bear Paw’s vice president, Gerry Veis, reported that the credit union had been having unexplained shortages of cash going back to 2007.
