She used some of the money to buy a new car and a house
A sheriff’s office worker has been arrested for allegedly refusing to return more than $1.2million that had been accidentally deposited into her account.
Kelyn Spadoni, 33, was taken into custody Wednesday on charges of theft, bank fraud and illegal transmission of monetary funds, according to local media.
She was also fired by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office – where she had worked for more than four years – following her arrest.
Authorities said a clerical error had caused Charles Schwab, a major financial services corporation, to deposit the seven-figure sun into her brokerage account when it only meant to transfer about $82 in February, nola.com reported.
When the bank attempted to reclaim the money, the request was rejected because the money was not available, according to the sheriff’s office.
