Blotter: Police: Bank teller fired after report of theft

Denton police were called to a bank in the 1500 block of South Loop 288 on Friday after bank personnel reported that a teller had been fired for an alleged theft.

According to a Denton police report, the teller allegedly removed a total of $500 from customer accounts over several months.
