KANSAS CITY, Kansas — A former suburban Kansas City credit union employee has admitted to embezzling more than $34,000.

The U.S. attorney's office says 25-year-old Susan Wooten-Robb pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of wire fraud. She is a former worker at the Community America Credit Union in Overland Park.

In February 2014, two account holders complained about unauthorized debits from their accounts.

Prosecutors say that in one instance, she attempted to cover up an unauthorized debit by filing a false currency transaction report. In it, she claimed the account holders took out the money to assist a family member with paying tuition.

She faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million. Sentencing will be set for a later date.
