BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Maine bank teller has pleaded guilty to embezzling bank funds.

Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that 37-year-old Jodi L. Webber of Hancock stole more than $83,000 in cash from her teller draw at the Camden National Bank branch in Bar Harbor between November 2015 and February 2016, replacing the cash with funds withdrawn from five customer accounts. Court records say Webber would forge the customers’ signatures on withdrawal slips.

Prosecutors say the scheme was discovered when a customer questioned an unauthorized withdrawal, which prompted the bank to investigate and contact law enforcement.

Webber faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine if convicted.
