CHARLES CITY | A Charles City woman is accused of stealing more than $17,000 while working at a bank in Charles City.

Cassandra Marie Lane, 33, is charged with felony first-degree and second-degree theft stemming from incidents October 2016 to August 2017 at First Security Bank and Trust, 809 Clark St., where she was employed. 

According to court documents, Lane allegedly took $13,300 from one account holder’s personal bank account and placed the money into her husband’s checking and/or savings account between Oct. 21, 2016, to April 28, 2017. 

On July 10, 2017, and Aug. 17, 2017, Lane is also accused of taking $3,987.78 from an internal account at the bank and placing the funds into her husband's checking account, court documents say. 

“She had no authority to do so and used the money for her own benefit,” court documents said. Police didn't say what the money was used for. 

Lane, who has no prior criminal history, was arrested by the Floyd County Sheriff's Office Jan. 26. 

She was released from the Floyd County Jail after posting $500, or 10 percent of her $5,000 bond. 

Lane was scheduled to appear in Floyd County District Court Wednesday. Her attorney, D. Raymond Walton of the Beecher Law Office in Waterloo, waived her initial appearance and preliminary hearing. 

A trial date has not been set.
