Credit Union Theft Investigation Leads Supervisor To Fess Up To Embezzling $437,000

Most of the times when a workplace is robbed it is not a good thing. But in the case of the Columbus Credit Union in Providence, RI, it appears a holdup on Sept. 18 led to the uncovering of a much larger embezzlement scheme being perpetrated by a supervisor at the credit union. On that day, a woman entered the premises to make threats with a fake bomb, walking away with roughly $10,000. When local police began to investigate the crime, and mentioned a plan to audit the credit union, 27-year old supervisor Crystal Ferreira apparently knew what that report might turn up.
