Kansas woman charged with embezzling from bank

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A former assistant branch manager has been charged with embezzling $346,000 from the Wichita bank where she worked.

The U.S. attorney's office says 43-year-old Lisa Marie Evans, of Wichita, was indicted Wednesday on one count of embezzlement by a bank employee. The indictment alleges she stole the money between 2011 and 2013 while employed at Southwest National Bank.

Court records do not list a lawyer for Evans, and the U.S. attorney's office said it did not know if she had hired one. No working phone listing for her could be found.

Evans has been summoned for a first court appearance on Nov. 25.

The charge carries maximum penalties of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine. The government is also seeking a forfeiture judgment.
