POCATELLO, Idaho -- A former teller at an Idaho Falls credit union has been sentenced to two months in prison, followed by two months of home detention for embezzlement.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 40-year-old Virginia Mecham of Ammon was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill. Mecham also was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $23,625 in restitution.

Mecham pleaded guilty in February to embezzlement by a credit union employee.

The case came to light after customers of Westmark Credit Union contacted the credit union to ask about unauthorized withdrawals from their accounts. An investigation found Mecham handled all of the questionable transactions.
