Credit union reports $10,000 theft

Theft of $10,000 more than 2½ years ago from Great Plains Federal Credit Union was reported Sept. 26 to Hillsboro police.

Assistant chief Randy Brazil said the theft had been reported to McPherson police in 2020, but not to Hillsboro police.

A fraudulent check was deposited at Great Plains’ McPherson branch, then $10,000 was withdrawn at the Hillsboro branch.

Branch manager Elizabeth Wine reported the theft to Hillsboro police in September on instructions from the credit union’s headquarters.

McPherson and Hillsboro police are investigating the theft. Police have no suspects at this time.

“I’m going to dig into it Wednesday and Thursday and see what McPherson police department has obtained, since they looked into it two years ago,” Brazil said.
