A 30-year-old Central City woman faces charges of theft for allegedly stealing over $250,000 from the Black Hawk branch of the Credit Union of the Rockies.
Autumn Rene Guillot worked as an assistant branch manager at the small bank branch in 2011, said Pam Russell of the First Judicial District Attorney's Office.
Guillot would steal the money in small parts by pulling straps of $100 cash out of the vault and then altering the ledgers, Russell said.
Bank officials became suspicious when an unannounced spot audit of the bank found discrepancies in their ledger, Russell said.
According to the sheriffs affidavit, Guillot was a regular gambler at Gilpin County casinos and had lost over $73,000.
She faces two class-three felony charges of theft and is currently out on a $50,000 bond, Russell said.
