LAUREL -- A Mississippi woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling thousands of dollars from the bank where she worked. 

 

A federal indictment says Stacy Ishee was an employee of the Laurel branch of Citizens National Bank of Meridian. The indictment said she took cash from the bank's vault and created false documents to hide the theft. She was accused of taking $86,000 from the vault over a period of about a decade. 

 

She pleaded guilty Thursday. Sentencing is set for March 1 in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg. 

 

Ishee is free on bond pending sentencing.
