Former bank teller pleads guilty to embezzlement

KANSAS CITY, KAN. - A former Labette County bank clerk pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal charge of embezzlement, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Angela S. Littlejohn, 41, Chetopa, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement. In her plea, she admitted the crime occurred while she worked as a teller during 2013 and 2014 at the Chetopa State Bank in Chetopa, Kan. She stole a total of at least $82,000 from multiple accounts at the bank.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 28. Both parties are recommending a sentence of time served, two years on probation and restitution of $82,000. Grissom commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch for their work on the case.
