A Buford woman is accused of stealing more than $100,000 from a Gainesville bank without ever using a mask, note or gun.

Former SunTrust Bank financial services representative Ashley Osborne, 23, was arrested this week on four counts of felony theft by deception, charged with stealing from the branch where she worked on E.E. Butler Parkway by cashing out certificates of deposit belonging to the deceased or elderly.

Osborne, who was fired from her job sometime after the discovery of the alleged thefts, arranged her surrender through her lawyer Monday after being a fugitive since mid-November, police said.

In November, Osborne closed out four certificates of deposit and had official SunTrust bank checks made out to an accomplice named Koran Raysor, said Gainesville police Lt. Brian Kelly. One of the CDs, for $84,000, belonged to a person who had died, and the other three belonged to an elderly bank customer, Kelly said.

The total amount stolen from the bank was $136,878, according to arrest warrants.

Marsha Stanley, SunTrust’s area manager for Hall County, said the bank has a longstanding policy of not commenting on law enforcement matters.

"We will allow them to handle this," Stanley said.

Tuesday, Osborne remained in the Hall County Jail.

Kelly said there are outstanding arrest warrants for the alleged accomplice.
