Roxana Foley, 51, of Bridgeport awaits arraignment hearing.

Last week the Mono Sheriff’s Office released the information that their investigators, along with the FBI, served warrants and arrested a Bridgeport woman for alleged felony embezzlement from a local bank.  For now, the Mono County District Attorney’s Office is handling the case.

According to Assistant District Attorney Tim Kendall, if the US Attorney’s office wants to handle the case, the Mono DA will “consider allowing them to take it.”  Kendall said that he has no further details on the case at this point except that the suspect, Roxanna Foley, 51 of Bridgeport did post bail and is out of Mono County Jail, pending an arraignment hearing.

Authorities alleged that Foley, a former bank branch manager of Eastern Sierra Community Bank, embezzled funds.  Mono Sheriff’s Public Information Officer, Jennifer Hansen, said that at this time officers are not sure about the amount of money embezzled.  The case, she said, “is still a very active investigation.”

Officers arrested Foley last Thursday.  She was booked into the Mono County Jail without incident.  We have placed a call to Eastern Sierra Community Bank headquarters and await comment.
