The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested Kristy Hodges Saturday after an investigation into funds missing from a Clarksville bank.

According to the TBI, Hodges, 30, was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury on Oct. 2 on one count of theft over $60,000, two counts of false bookkeeping entries over $1,000 and seven counts of false bookkeeping entries over $10,000.

TBI officials said they began the investigation in September at the request of District Attorney General John Carney.

Between 2008 and 2012, Hodges is accused of obtaining by embezzlement and fraudulent conversion over $60,000 from her employer, Capital Bank, located at 25 Jefferson St. in Clarksville, where she was employed as head teller.

Hodges has been released on $2,500 bond.
