A Floyd County grand jury indicted a former bank employee for allegedly stealing nearly $40,000 in cash from two customer accounts.
The grand jury indicted former First Commonwealth Bank employee Dorinda Hull, 29, of Garrett, on two counts of theft by unlawful taking or disposition.
Hull allegedly stole money from accounts belonging to two customers at the bank, the indictment says, from Jan. 19-23, from Feb. 7-8, and on Feb. 4 and Feb. 20.
Floyd County Commonwealth’s Attorney Brent Turner reported that Hull was an employee at the bank when the alleged thefts occurred. He said the alleged thefts totaled around $38,000.
The alleged thefts occurred after First Commonwealth Bank announced that it would merge into Peoples Bancorp, the company that now operates former First Commonwealth Bank branches in Floyd and surrounding counties. That $45.4 million merger was finalized in April.
Alyssa Ramey-Coleman, regional vice president of Kentucky for Peoples, did not return calls seeking comment.
Hull is scheduled to be arraigned in Floyd Circuit Court on Aug. 20.
