DeFuniak Springs Fla Sept 30 2010 resident Jennifer Lynn Dockery, 30, of West Park Lane was arrested on Sept. 27 on felony charges of Grand Theft of more than $8,500 in cash from SunTrust Bank.
The arrest was made after DeFuniak Springs Police Detectives working in conjunction with SunTrust Bank’s Security Division, investigated a theft of funds by a bank teller identified as Dockery.
Dockery’s cash drawer was audited on August 19th and was found to be short. After this was found bank officials notified regional managers who immediately initiated an internal investigation.
This incident was then reported to the Criminal Investigations Division of the DeFuniak Springs Police who investigated further. Detectives and bank security determined that Dockery had taken varying amounts of cash from her drawer over a six-month period of time, ranging from March to August of this year.
Dockery was able to cover up the missing funds by “force balancing” her drawer until the audit on August 19th when the theft was uncovered. After a full investigation Dockery was arrested on the felony charge of Grand Theft.
Dockery was booked and released from the Walton County Jail on $10,000 bond.
