(POPLAR BLUFF, Mo., AP) — A southeast Missouri bank employee is facing federal charges for allegedly embezzling nearly $400,000 from the bank.

Authorities say the discrepancy was discovered during an internal audit, and the FBI was alerted. Kirby worked as a bank teller supervisor at the First Midwest Bank in Poplar Bluff.
A bank official says there is no evidence that customer accounts were victimized.
