A local bank manager has admitted to participating in an embezzlement scheme.

KAMC News reports that Sara Ruth Briones was working as a bank manager for Lubbock National Bank when court documents say she was contacted by her sister-in-law, Patricia Sanchez Tovar, who was also a bank manager at Wells Fargo.

Tovar offered Briones $3000 to open a bank account under the name of someone living in Dickens. Tovar then had a check with an amount of over $58,000 deposited to the new account that actually came from a deceased person’s bank account.

Briones has accepted a plea deal in the case and will be sentenced later to no more than three years in federal prison. The case against Tovar is still ongoing.
