Addicted gambler gets house arrest after stealing $1 million

From LFP, “It started a major gambling addiction for the woman as she returned repeatedly to the casino, eventually spending $100,000 of her own funds.

Paquette said Pepper went to her employer seeking help for her addiction but was given short-shrift and offered no counselling.

According to police, Pepper then began using her bank position to transfer money between client accounts and open new accounts in the names of some clients.

Her scheme worked from October 2010 until November 2014 when an internal bank audit uncovered the theft.

By that time, the bank had lost nearly $1 million, although it ensured no clients were out of pocket. “
