Daly City bank teller, boyfriend accused of swiping money from deceased customer 

A Daly City bank teller and her boyfriend are being accused of going on a spending spree with a recently deceased 91-year-old customer's money.

Priscilla Banh, 24, and Jabriel Scott, 23, who reportedly live together in San Francisco, are facing multiple charges in connection with the theft of more than $100,000 from the man's Wells Fargo bank accounts.

The account was owned by a man who died July 17, prosecutors said.

Four days before his death, Banh, a teller at the Daly City branch, allegedly transferred $119,600 from the victim's accounts into three fraudulently opened accounts in his name, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. She also created debit cards for those accounts, Wagstaffe said.

Most of the purchases were made in San Francisco, the district attorney added. Scott allegedly made several of those purchases.

The theft reportedly came to light when the executor of the victim's estate, who happened to be a Daly City police sergeant, obtained records and discovered money had been stolen.

Banh and Scott were arrested at their San Francisco home Aug. 15. The two of them remain in custody on $250,000 bail, Wagstaffe said.
