BURLEY, Idaho – A former member service rep at MAP CU was sentenced this week to three to 10 years in prison for stealing $23,000 from member accounts.

Lisa Trevino, 35, was charged with two counts of grand theft, two counts of petit theft, fraud while serving as an employee of a financial institution and forgery after she allegedly transferred money from other people’s accounts.

Trevino worked at the credit union for more than three years and quit suddenly after the thefts occurred. After she quit, court records state, the credit union’s manager reviewed her personal account and noticed a string of suspicious deposits.

Trevino allegedly took $16,310 last year from one victim’s account through a series of transactions from July 2 to Aug. 14. Trevino allegedly moved the money from the victim’s account into her own or those of her children. Court records state she chose the victim because of the account’s high balance. Trevino allegedly also took $1,000 from the credit union’s cash drawer, along with $200 and $400 from two other account holders.
