A Drumheller woman accused of defrauding local customers of ATB Financial has had her case delayed again.
 
Rebecca Tucker was arrested in early August after RCMP received a complaint from ATB that an employee of the Drumheller branch had made unauthorised withdrawals from the accounts of seven different bank clients.
 
It is alleged that the funds were taken from the victim’s accounts between November 2015 and November 2016.
 
All of the victims were senior citizens and a total of over $40,000 was taken through 16 different cash withdrawals.
 
Tucker is charged with 16 counts of fraud under $5,000 as well as 13 counts of drawing documents without authority.
 
The 36 year old appeared briefly in Drumheller Provincial Court last Friday and had the matter put back to December 22.
