Va. banker accused of stealing $8 mil

A Wells Fargo bank employee in Loudoun County has been arrested and held in federal custody without bond after allegedly embezzling nearly $8 million from one customer's account. Linda Speaks Tribby, 42, lives in Lovettsville, and was a business relationship manager for Wells Fargo. She had worked for the bank and its predecessor, Wachovia, for more than 25 years, according to an affidavit written by FBI Special Agent Mark Richard Stanley. One of her longtime clients, identified in the affidavit as "MDM," opened a "wealth management account" in 2003 which would allow MDM to avoid federal taxes on its earnings, Stanley wrote.

1 yr. for man who embezzled $600K

The executive director of a Fairfax County-based national association of opticians was sentenced Friday to a year in prison for his part in a scheme which authorities said stole about $1.7 million from the association. Hugh Michael Robey, 48, of Bowie, had been the executive director of the American Board of Opticianry and the National Contact Lens Examiners, a nonprofit group on Loisdale Road in the Springfield area. Fairfax prosecutors said he used about $600,000 of the association's funds to take trips and buy expensive items for his family and friends, but in the end he did not wind up with any cash, his lawyer, James C. Clark said.
