       SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) _ A bank employee in eastern Nebraska has been accused of stealing more than $150,000 at her job through falsified loans over a nearly five-year period.
        Court records show 37-year-old Diana Sanchez, of Schuyler, is charged with nine felony counts of theft by unlawful taking. She is scheduled to make an appearance Tuesday in Colfax County Court.
        Records do not list an attorney for Sanchez, who was arrested Oct. 1. She was released from a detention facility after posting bond.
        Sanchez, who recently worked as a residential mortgage lender at a Pinnacle Bank branch, is accused of accessing customer information to create and process loan checks ranging from about $5,000 to $30,000. Court documents say she cashed the checks at the bank and pocketed the money.
