53 year old Joseph Stevens of Olean was arrested and charged with Bank Fraud following a criminal complaint from his former employer.

Stevens is accused of stealing approximately $470,000 in unauthorized withdrawals from two business bank accounts at the Five Start Bank branch in Warsaw.

Stevens was hired by the business owner as a Certified Public Accountant in 2012 giving him access to the business owner’s two accounts.

Stevens allegedly told the owner that his business was not doing well on a number of occasions to cover for the mysteriously vanishing funds.

He could be facing a maximum of 30 years in prison along with a $1,000,000 fine.
