A former North Texas banker who stole $2 million from customers has been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

A federal judge in Fort Worth on Wednesday sentenced Pamela Cobb and also ordered her to repay more than $1.1 million.

The 40-year-old ex-Bank of America branch manager in March pleaded guilty to bank fraud in a scam since 2002.

Prosecutors say Cobb would illegally withdraw cash from accounts and use the money for personal items. Investigators say Cobb targeted people she knew because t hose customers would report any suspected theft directly to her.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (bit.ly/Qe7cS7) reports Cobb remains free on bond but must report to prison Oct. 29. She also must forfeit diamond jewelry, a 1967 Ford Mustang and a camping trailer.
