Wells Fargo Employee Accused of Stealing $16,700 from Customer’s Account
A Wells Fargo employee in the sleepy hamlet of Shrub Oak in Westchester County was arrested last week. The employee is facing felony charges of identity theft and grand larceny in Yorktown. He is also accused of stealing $16,700 from the savings account of a customer.
Jamile Dixon of Ossining allegedly used the identity of a Wells Fargo Bank account holder to steal $16,700. The Yorktown Police allege the theft happened between July 31 and Aug. 31 of this year.
Another Wells Fargo employee reported the alleged crime Wednesday, Oct. 21st. Dixon then turned himself into Yorktown Police Headquarters a week later.
Dixon is charged with first-degree identify theft and two counts of third-degree grand larceny. All of which are class D felonies. Dixon was released on $500 bail and is scheduled to return to Yorktown Justice Court on Wednesday, Nov. 11th.
What is unclear about this case is Dixon’s bail was at $500 after the theft of $16,700 and Identity theft. It is also unclear what Dixon’s motivation was.
Dixon had also been Wells Fargo employee at the Wells Fargo branch located at 1345 East Main Street in Shrub Oak
