Payroll withdrawal investigated
A payroll clerk at Coulee Medical Center ran into a problem when the bank associated with the hospital’s payroll account would not let her into the account.
The bank, according to a written Grand Coulee Police report, told the payroll clerk that the account had been entered illegally and $4,980 had been removed.
The money went to an account at another bank and routing numbers and the person with the account had given his name.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into the incident and the payroll bank stated that it would make the fraudulent withdrawal good if a report was made to the police department.
