Affidavit: Former bank employee stole more than $40,000 from elderly customers
A woman who had been working at a local bank confessed to stealing more than $40,000 from customers over several years, according to court records.
Melinda Villegas Rebolloso, 44, was arrested Monday and charged with fraudulent use or possession of identifying information and misappropriation of fiduciary property. Her bail totals $50,000.
A Texas Department of Public Safety special agent began investigating Rebolloso in February, according to her arrest warrant affidavit.

Authorities did not say which bank Rebolloso worked for, but that she had been accumulating the information as she assisted customers with their bank accounts.
The affidavit states that Rebolloso told an investigator she took the money because she was having financial difficulties.
Rebolloso allegedly used 14 pieces of personal information to make payments to her credit cards, utilities and car payment, investigators said. The amount stolen is approximately $42,474.13, the affidavit states.
Investigators said the accounts of 13 people, several of whom are elderly, were affected.
