ALBANY, Ga. — A former Regions Bank employee has been arrested on theft charges after allegedly stealing $30,000 from the bank account of an elderly customer, police officials say.

Lt. Anita Allen with the Dougherty County Sheriff’s Office said that the suspect — Susan Taylor, 40 — had been an employee of the bank for more than a year. The alleged theft is thought to have been ongoing since September 2011 until it was caught last month, police said.

In all, about $30,000 is believed to have been stolen, Allen said.

Taylor is a former branch team leader of the bank. The theft was uncovered after a family member of the victim — identified as Greta Rogers, 95 — inquired about her account and found suspicious activity, Allen said.

Taylor was arrested at 11:40 a.m. on Monday a.m. in Bainbridge and brought back to Albany. As of now, she is being charged with six felony counts and two misdemeanor counts of theft by taking, Allen said.

The theft remains under investigation. Allen said she could not say Monday afternoon whether this incident could be connected to any other cases.

If she stole $30000 she will do time for the crime. And she will have to pay back the money too or she will remain on probation until she does. They think that they will never get caught. She got toooo greedy.

You said she will have to pay back the $30K or remain on probation until she does. Is staying on probation going to be such a hardship to her if she does have to be on it? Not being a wiseass, but does a person's life really become so altered when they are on probation? I see people all the time who are on probation working and going about their everyday business, seemingly proud of being on probation and all they have to do is get permission from their parole officer when they want to go to the beach for a weekend. I just don't understand how the probation system works but what I would like to see is for her to have to work and pay every penny she makes to Mrs. Rogers and report to jail every single night till it is paid off.

I don't get that comment either about not paying restitution and probation ???, install a ball and chain on them 24/7 until all monies and fines are paid then you'll see the money paid back fast. That way we can see who the crooks are when they are out and about, they'll get tired of hiding indoors sooner or later and pay up.
