Employee Accused Of Stealing More Than $250,000 From Credit Union
BLACK HAWK, Colo. (CBS4) – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said a Central City woman has been arrested for allegedly stealing more than $250,000 from the Black Hawk branch of the Credit Union of the Rockies where she worked.
Pam Russell with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said Autumn Rene Guillot, 30, was the assistant branch manager in 2011. She’s accused to have stolen the money a little at a time by pulling “straps” of cash out of the vault and then altering the ledgers.
Guillot was one of two full-time employees at the credit union.
“According to court records, bank officials became suspicious and contacted Black Hawk police in November 2011 when an unannounced ‘spot’ audit uncovered discrepancies in their ledger,” Russell said in a statement.
Russell said Guillot was a regular gambler at Gilpin County casinos, according to the arrest affidavit, and had sustained significant losses in 2011.
“Her gambling losses in 2011 were over $73,000.”
Guillot is expected in court on Wednesday.
