A banker in Savannah is facing a conspiracy charge in U.S. District Court in connection with theft of money from a Wells Fargo customer’s account, according to court records.

Prosecutors said Shameca Maxwell was a teller at a branch in Savannah when she worked with an unnamed conspirator to obtain a customer’s bank account and driver’s license number, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Maxwell then allegedly withdrew more than $12,000 from the customer’s account in a series of transactions in January and February and converted part of the cash to her own use.
