A Stockman Bank employee is accused of stealing a woman’s identity, illegally transferring money between two customer accounts and laundering tens of thousands of dollars.

Shawn Al Logan is charged in a 10-count indictment with aggravated identity theft, money laundering and bank embezzlement.

Logan is identified by federal prosecutors as a Stockman Bank employee. The bank did not immediately respond to a request for Logan’s dates of employment or other questions.

In five transactions between Feb. 5 and March 29, 2018, prosecutors alleging aggravated identity theft of an unnamed woman say Logan made internal transfers from one customer account to another, totaling $176,500.

It was not immediately clear whether the woman was a customer of the bank, another employee or some other party.

Logan obtained the money through bank embezzlement between September 2017 and April 2018, charges state.
