Bank teller convicted for staged robbery


A federal jury in Baltimore convicted a former Columbia bank teller this week for her inside role in a bank robbery, prosecutors said yesterday.

After a one-week trial, Jayne A. McLean, 26, of Baltimore was convicted late Thursday of bank larceny and conspiracy to commit bank larceny.

According to trial testimony in U.S. District Court, McLean amassed a large amount of cash in her teller drawer at the Owen Brown shopping center branch of Chevy Chase Bank on May 16, 2001. She then staged a mock robbery by arranging to have an acquaintance demand the money from her, which totaled $27,752.

McLean faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
