Coffeyville Woman Pleads Guilty to Mail Fraud

Federal prosecutors say a Coffeyville woman has plead guilty to one count of mail fraud after stealing $150,000 from a customer at a bank where she worked.

61-year-old Phyllis Lanning admitted that while working for Condon National Bank in Coffeyville she created and mailed falsified documents to conceal the theft. She also diverted legitimate monthly statements to a post office box in Oklahoma that she controlled.

Lanning had also mailed fraudulent statements to the account owner. The theft was discovered after the account owner died and family members took control of the account.

Her sentencing is set for September 24th.
