By The Canadian Press on June 12, 2018.

RED DEER, Alta. – Mounties in Alberta have arrested a bank employee for allegedly stealing $1.1 million.

RCMP say the woman was working at an ATB Financial branch in Sylvan Lake when she forged a customer’s signature and obtained a loan in the customer’s name.

The woman was fired as a loan officer and police began investigating the case last summer.

Officers uncovered numerous other loans using the personal information of clients and people the employee knew.

RCMP say they have contacted everyone involved and assured them that they have not lost any money.

Sarah Miles Brouilette, 38, of Red Deer faces several charges including theft and fraud.

She is to appear in Red Deer provincial court July 17.
