ABILENE — Edalia Martinez Oliver, 44, of Woodson was sentenced Friday, May 25, 2018, by Senior U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to serve a total of 12 months in federal prison, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $41,992.20, following her guilty plea in February 2018 to bank theft of the First State Bank Graham (FSB) in Woodson, Texas, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

 

            Oliver pleaded guilty to one count of bank theft; that is, to take and carry away, with intent to steal and purloin money in an amount exceeding $1,000.00 belonging to, and in the care, custody, control, management, and possession of FSB, a bank whose deposits were insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. 

 

            According to documents filed in the case, in March 2017 through June 29, 2017, FSB management began to notice suspicious activity with Martinez’s bank account to include large cash deposits and transaction activity with casinos in Oklahoma.  On June 29, 2017, FSB management conducted a surprise teller and vault cash audit at its Woodson branch.  Oliver told FSB management that there would be money missing out of the vault.  Upon completion of the cash audit, FSB learned that $38,592.20 was missing.  On June 29 and 30, 2017, Oliver admitted to FSB management and the Sheriff of Throckmorton County, Texas that she stole the money to gamble and had a gambling problem. 

 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Throckmorton County Texas Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jeffrey Haag and Beverly Chapman were in charge of the prosecution.
