PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - A 32-year-old former assistant bank manager from Pottstown has been charged with misapplication of bank funds by the U.S. Justice Department.
The government maintains that Lynsey H. Haslip, formerly "Lynsey H. Dabback," misapplied a total of $172,100 from bank customers' accounts in 2009, while she was employed as an assistant branch manager at PNC Bank in West Chester.
The charges against her were announced Friday by U.S. Atty. Zane David Memeger.
The government charges that between January and May 2009, Haslip performed a dozen unauthorized withdrawals, debits, and redemptions from the accounts of seven different PNC Bank customers without the customers' knowledge or consent.
Haslip used the stolen funds to issue cashier's checks to, and make deposits to, the accounts of other PNC Bank customers.
Haslip told the recipient customers that they had received PNC Bank loans, when she knew they had not been approved for any such loans by the bank.
If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of 30 years in prison, five years of supervised release, a fine of up to $1 million, a $100 special assessment and an order to pay full restitution.
The case was investigated by the United States Secret Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Atty. Nancy E. Potts.
Two counselors at an addiction facility in Chester County died of opioid overdoses at the group home, the district attorney announced Wednesday.Read More »
