NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested the head teller at a Capital Bank in Clarksville for false bookkeeping and theft totaling over $60,000.

The agency said that 30-year-old Kristy Hodges was arrested Saturday after she was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury on Tuesday. She faces one count of theft and several counts of false bookkeeping.

The TBI said in a release that they began the embezzlement investigation in September at the request of District Attorney General John Carney.

Hodges is alleged to have taken over $60,000 from her employer between 2008 and 2012. She was released on a $2,500 bond.
