An assistant branch manager and head teller at a Pittsburgh bank has been charged with embezzling more than $129,000.

A federal grand jury charges that 39-year-old Diana Phillips worked at a First National Bank branch when he used her position to move bank funds into a relative's holiday account and then into her own joint checking account shared with her husband.

Investigators said Phillips faked ledger entries to cover up the fraudulent transfers.

Federal prosecutors want her to forfeit the allegedly stolen money if she's convicted.
