Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a Murfreesboro woman accused of misusing her position as a personal banker.
At the request of former 16th District Attorney General Bill Whitesell, TBI Special Agents began investigating Conni Vongphakdy on June 20th. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that over the span of several months, Vongphakdy, a personal banker at Sun Trust Bank on East Main Street in Murfreesboro, withdrew funds from various accounts without the consent of the account holders. Sun Trust terminated Vongphakdy's employment in May.
On Tuesday, the Rutherford County Grand Jury returned indictments for Vongphakdy, charging the 43-year-old with four counts of Theft over $10,000, two counts of Theft over $1,000, one count of Theft over $60,000, two counts of Forgery over $1,000, and two counts of Money Laundering. On Wednesday, Vongphakdy surrendered herself to TBI Agents at the Rutherford County Sheriff's Department, where she was booked and subsequently released after posting $10,000 bond.
