Putnam County Woman Accused Of Lying To The FDIC

A Put­nam County woman is in some seri­ous trou­ble after being accused of lying to the FCIC. 55 year old Sharon Piper is charged with mak­ing a mate­ri­ally false state­ment to the Fed­eral Deposit Insur­ance Cor­po­ra­tion.

Piper was the head teller for the Union Bank Co. at its Colum­bus Grove branch. In 2010, inves­ti­ga­tors say she falsely stated the vault at the bank was in bal­ance, when she knew it was actu­ally short by $145,000. If con­victed, Piper could be look­ing at sub­stan­tial time in fed­eral prison. The Fed­eral Bureau of Inves­ti­ga­tion is inves­ti­gat­ing, and the case is being pros­e­cuted by assis­tant U.S. attor­ney Gene Crawford.
