GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A former vice president at a Grand Junction bank has pleaded guilty to theft and other charges after an audit determined $650,000 had been embezzled.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports 53-year-old Anna Jones entered her plea Tuesday. She faces up to 12 years in prison at her Sept. 11 sentencing hearing.

She pleaded guilty to felony theft of more than $20,000, trespassing and violating probation.

Jones supervised tellers at a branch of the Bank of Colorado. Bank officials alerted police in March 2011 after the audit determined money was missing, and Jones was arrested in November 2012.

The audit showed the embezzlement began in April 2009.

A court document said Jones had two mortgages, two vehicle loans and eight credit cards.
