A 35-year-old former bank supervisor in Thousand Oaks has been sentenced to eight months in federal prison for embezzling $13,705 in bank funds, according to the FBI.
Sue Ann Knibbs, a former teller supervisor at the First Interstate Bank at 1800 N. Moorpark Road, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles earlier this month after a federal jury found her guilty of depositing phony checks into her personal account at the bank.
According to FBI Special Agent Theodore J. Bowler, bank officials discovered that Knibbs had written a $10,000 check to herself two years ago. After she was confronted, she admitted taking other funds between March, 1987, and September, 1988, Bowler said.
In November, Knibbs--who has paid back all the money she took from the bank--was indicted on three embezzlement charges, Bowler said.
