LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A Leesville woman has pleaded guilty to falsifying records and otherwise hiding that more than $1 million had been stolen from a bank.

Acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook said in a news release Wednesday that 46-year-old Amanda Pollock entered the plea before U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey to one count of concealing a document in a federal investigation.

Authorities say Pollock stole 10 weeks of vault logs on May 10, 2014, while working as a teller at the Fort Polk branch of a local bank. She also entered false transactions into the bank’s records to cover up $1.1 million that was missing.

Pollock faces up to five years in prison, restitution and a $2.3 million fine. Sentencing is set for Aug. 2.
