A bank teller manager from Odenton pleaded guilty in federal court in Greenbelt yesterday to embezzling more than $35,000.

Theresa Williamson, 40, worked at Wachovia Bank in Laurel starting in 2002, according to court documents. Over two years, she transferred about $35,920 from a vault to her checking account, prosecutors said. The transactions generally involved between $1,000 and $2,000 each. She would create a "miscellaneous cash out ticket" for the amount she had taken to balance the bank's records, documents say. Because the bank rarely audited the vault, the crime was not discovered until an audit Sept. 1, 2004, while Williamson was on vacation.

She repaid the bank, prosecutors said. When she returns to court Jan. 12, she could face a maximum of 30 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release.
