Former bank employee has formal arraignment


MURFREESBORO—Former Bear State Bank (formerly First National Bank) employee Holly Littles was in Pike County Circuit Court Monday for her formal arraignment.
Formal charges were filed against 37-year-old Littles, of Murfreesboro, August 4 for theft of property-a class C felony.
Littles trial was continued and she is to return August 24 with her lawyer.
According to the affidavit of arrest, the charge comes after an audit was performed at the bank.
On Thursday, July 9 Murfreesboro Police Chief Randy Lamb was called to Bear State Bank where he met with Jim Arrington, Director of Retail Operations Terri Coleman and two other bank officials. Lamb was told that the bank had conducted an audit and that two of the employees were found to have cash outages.
The official advised Lamb that the two individuals were no longer at the bank and that they wanted to notify the Murfreesboro Police Department of the situation.
The next day Lamb received a call to meet with a person at the Pike County Detention Facility. Littles was waiting for Lamb in the lobby of the building and she told him that she wanted to talk to him in regards to the incident at the bank.
Lamb read Littles her Miranda Rights and then took a written statement from her. Littles confessed to taking money from the bank, saying that over the past month and a half she had taken $14,280.91 and that she wanted to pay the money back in full.
After talking with Littles, Lamb received a fax from Coleman that stated the audit found Littles’ drawer to be short in the amount of $14,213.41. The fax went on to state that Littles had confessed to taking the money and the bank wished to file charges against her. Later that afternoon, Arrington told Lamb that Littles had repaid the bank in full that day.
