Some local bank customers are feeling the sting of what investigators say was a theft from within.
Bryan police say a Citibank employee at a West Bryan branch is responsible for four thefts from three accounts over a five-month period.
Investigators say the first theft was in December 2006, while the last was documented in April 2007.
How much money was stolen is not known, but Citibank has reimbursed the account holders for their losses.
So far, no arrests have been made, but the investigation is on-going.
Citibank officials would neither confirm, nor deny that the employee in question has been fired.
Instead, the bank released the following statement:
"Citibank is committed to providing a superior customer experience, which includes the safety and security of our customers' accounts. Although we cannot comment on ongoing police investigations, in situations such as this we will absolutely make our customers whole. We apologize for any inconvenience that our customers have experienced."
If arrested, the suspect will likely face charges of felony theft.
