LEESBURG, Ga. — Victoria Metz, an Albany resident and former Colony Bank teller in Leesburg, was found guilty of 16 felonies by a federal jury Wednesday, according to an email from U.S. Attorney Michael J. Moore in the Middle District of Georgia.
After a two-day trial before District Court Judge W. Louis Sands, Metz was found guilty on 10 counts of embezzlement of government property and six counts of aggravated identity theft.
According to the email report, Metz cashed 23 stolen IRS refund checks that had forged signatures. She received the checks from a third party, who paid her between $600 to $1,000 on three occasions.
Plans call for sentencing in two months at a date set by the court.
