A former bank branch manager is charged with several felonies after police said she embezzled money from her employer totaling $73,631.23.

Associates at the Dearborn Savings Bank on Ridge Avenue in Greendale contacted police after they noticed cash had been vanishing for quite some time and discovered that it was being taken by the branch manager, court documents indicated.

Bank officials met with Yavone Seymour, 45, of Aurora, and confronted her about the missing money on February 6. According to the Probable Cause Affidavit, she first denied it but later admitted and signed a letter that she did in fact take the money.

The allegations against her span over seven years as authorities believe she had been embezzling money at different times from March 2007 to February 2014.

She was relieved of job duties following the meeting with the bank officials, the same day police suspect her of stealing $3,520 from an ATM machine at the Greendale Branch Bank.

Seymour allegedly did not take money from customers, but would withdraw funds from either someone’s savings or CD account and then show in the computer system that the money was then placed back appearing as if the bank made a mistake. She is accused of taking money from the banks interest, therefore customers never lost funds but the bank was out of money.

According to police, she would correct customers 1099 forms at the end of the year to reflect the proper interest.

Seymour contacted her former co-workers and expressed that she was apologetic and embarrassed about the situation, according to court documents.

She is facing eights counts of Fraud on A Financial Institution (class C felony), nine counts of theft (class D felony) and one charge of Forgery.
