The probe continues into an alleged embezzlement from the Great Bend Credit Union of America branch, however Kansas Bureau of Investigation officials declined to comment further the case.
No charges have been filed and the name of the suspect has not been released, said Capt. Bob Robinson of the Great Bend Police Department. The GBPD was called to the branch at about 5 p.m. Feb. 17 and took the preliminary report. But, due to a possible conflict of interest, the matter was turned over to the KBI.
It was KBI Deputy Director Kyle Smith who on Friday said the investigation is on-going.
According to the first page of the incident report filed by the GBPD on Feb. 17, officers responded to the credit union at 4708 10th. The alleged theft involved $52,000.
Robinson said credit union officials had indicated that the embezzlement had taken place “over a period of time.”
A spokesperson at the CUA headquarters in Wichita confirmed that they had filed the police report.
In addition to the Great Bend branch, CUA has nine locations in Wichita and one in Derby, as well as several automatic teller machines.
