From the Chattanoogan: A teller is accused of embezzling over $47,000 while employed at the Collegedale Credit Union.

Leilana Bearce was arrested and booked for theft over $10,000, a class C felony.

Ms. Bearce had allegedly taken money out of various credit union member accounts and transferred them through her family members’ accounts before she would move them to her own.

Bearce is currently out on bond and is expected to appear in the Collegedale Municipal Court on March 29.
