Police Dispatcher Arrested For Refusing To Return Over $1 Million Mistakenly Deposited Into Her Account

 


  A former Louisiana police dispatcher was arrested last week after she allegedly would not return $1.2 million that was accidentally deposited into her bank account.


According to Fox 8, Kelyn Spadoni, 33, has been fired from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office after being charged with theft valued over $25,000, bank fraud and illegal transmission of monetary funds. Spadoni had worked for the department for 4.5 years.


Due to a clerical error, Charles Schwab deposited the extra funds in her account. Spadoni then moved the money to another account which prevented Schwab from retrieving the funds. Charles Schwab was unable to contact Spadoni regarding the error and filed a lawsuit against her and have so far recovered around 75% of the money.
