Bank manager in Orange admits skimming from CDs
A former Webster Bank branch manager admitted to skimming nearly $900,000 from 20 certificate of deposit accounts over 14 years.
Stephen Carbonella, a 59-year-old resident of Hamden, pleaded guilty to embezzlement during his tenure as a branch manager in Orange, according to the office of John Durham, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut.
Carbonella was arrested in early July and is free on a $200,000 bond in advance of a sentencing date in early December. Jury selection had been scheduled to begin on Sept. 11 for a trial of the government’s case against him.
