PITTSBURGH (AP) — An assistant branch manager and head teller at a Pittsburgh bank has been charged with embezzling more than $129,000.

A federal grand jury charges that Diana Phillips, 39, worked at a First National Bank branch when she used her position to move bank funds into a relative’s holiday account and then into her own joint checking account shared with her husband.

Investigators say Phillips faked ledger entries to cover up the fraudulent transfers.

Federal prosecutors want her to forfeit the allegedly stolen money if she’s convicted.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Phillips.
