WESTON, W.Va. — A former Weston bank branch manager has plead guilty to embezzlement.

According to a release from U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld’s Office, Deborah Radcliff, 51, of Weston, pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of embezzlement by a bank employee and one count of structuring.

Radcliff was a former branch manager of the Weston branch of Huntington National Bank.

The release states that from July 1, 2011, to November 5, 2012, Radcliff embezzled and misapplied $247,249.88 from depositors’ accounts. She also engaged in acts of structuring to cause the bank to fail to file a Currency Transaction Report for currency transactions of $10,000 or more.

As a branch bank manager, Radcliff knew about banking rules and regulations requiring banks to file reports for single financial transactions of more than $10,000.

To hide her scheme from the customer’s accounts, she would have multiple cashier’s checks issued for less than $10,000, which she would cash on different days, stated the release.

The ages of the alleged victims ranged from 56 to 90 years, with all but one alleged victim 64 years or older.

    What I know for certain is she had help doing this. Why no one else has been arrested is beyond me. My mothers account was emptied by these people and until it was all straightened out she could not buy her medicine. Deborah is realted to the Starchers in Jacksonmille and from what I know they helped embezzle the money and there are some older folks in Weston that do not know they were robbed. Deborahs sister in law Agnes is one of the ones I would look at. The whole bunch of them are thieves. I rememeber Mellisa Starcher (Henline) working at the Dairy mart and stealing all the lottery tickets. Randy And Agnes helped her get out of that. I am certain more people should be investigated. Starting with Agnes Starcher and Mellisa Henline.

    May I simply say what a relief to uncover an individual who actually knows what they're discussing online. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren't
    more popular since you surely possess the gift.
