Ex-teller pleads guilty to stealing more than $200K

WIGGINS — The former lead teller of the Bank of Wiggins has admitted embezzling more than $200,000.

The Sun Herald reports 38-year-old Veronica Morse pleaded guilty yesterday before Judge Larry Bourgeois in Stone County Circuit Court.

Bourgeois ordered Morse returned to jail pending sentencing on Thursday.

Bank employees began noticing suspicious activity in late 2012. Morse was charged with skimming from accounts and falsifying tickets to make it look like the money was there.

A bank audit showed Morse took thousands of dollars in several transactions over 1- 1/2 years.

Morse was arrested in December
