The United States Attorney’s Office in North Carolina is alleging a Wells Fargo bank employee stole $88,000 from the bank’s vault. Arlando Henderson wasn’t bashful about advertising to his social media followers. He showed pictures and pictures of the life of luxury he was funding.

The Feds unsealed the criminal indictment this week after the FBI arrested Henderson in San Diego. The unsealed indictment alleges Henderson stole cash out of the vault. Henderson also allegedly stole the money in separate allotments on at least 18 different occasions this year.

The USAO states Henderson used a social media account to post several pictures of him holding large stacks of cash.

Henderson also allegedly committed loan fraud to purchase a luxury automobile.

Henderson’s numerous Facebook and Instagram photos depict him posing with stacks of cash. He used the money to make a $20,000 down payment on a new Mercedes-Benz.

He also allegedly falsified bank documents to obtain a car loan.

Henderson’s Facebook and Instagram posts from September show him posing with a white Mercedes-Benz in Hollywood, California. The FBI arrested Henderson about three months later on December 4th.

Henderson also destroyed certain documents. He also made and caused others to make false entries in the bank’s records to cover up the theft.

Henderson Faces Decades In Prison

Federal prosecutors have charged Henderson with 19 counts of theft and embezzlement. The feds have also charged with 12 counts of making false entries and two counts of financial institution fraud. Those crimes carry a maximum penalty of 30 years and a $1 million fine.

The feds also charged Henerson with transactional money laundering. Transactional Money Laundering carries a penalty of 10 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine.

He appeared in U.S. District Court in Southern California earlier this month with the case set to be tried in North Carolina by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Charlotte.
