A bank employee is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from customer's accounts and is now facing grand larceny charges.

29-year-old Elijah Green from Clay, New York, worked at Solvay Bank from July 2019 to July 2021. He's accused of utilized his knowledge of the bank’s policies and procedures, to access several customer accounts to steal approximately $45,000, according to New York State Police.

Green was arrested on September 1 and charged with grand larceny and was taken to the Onondaga County Justice Center pending arraignment.

All affected bank customers have been contacted about the theft. There's no information on whether the money was recovered and returned to the customers' accounts.

State Police say Green is no longer employed by Solvay Bank.

Hiding money under your mattress doesn't sound like such a bad idea anymore.
