FLORENCE, S.C. -- A teller at a Clio bank has been sentenced to federal prison for embezzling more than $200,000 from the institution.

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles says Betty Lee Johnson was sentenced Friday in Florence to 33 months in prison. She was also ordered to pay $206,500 in restitution.

Johnson worked as a teller at a First Citizens Bank branch in Clio. Nettles says a surprise audit in December 2011 revealed that more than $200,000 was missing from Johnson’s bank drawer and the vault.

Nettles says Johnson took the money between June 2006 and May 2011.
