PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The second former bank employee admitted to stealing and sharing sensitive information from her employer, according to the R.I. District Attorney’s Office.

Officials said 24-year-old Isha-Lee Savage admitted to sharing screenshots and information from Santander Bank, that disclosed customer account information on Tuesday.

Court documents show last week, Savonnah Briggs, 28, also admitted to accessing and sharing customer information from her employer, Citizens Bank.

Records also show both Savage and Briggs would send information to the conspiracy’s leader, 26-year-old Richard Koboi.

Koboi would then create fraudulent checks to deposit for himself or his affiliates.

Officials say members of the conspiracy created and deposited $330,000 worth of fake checks.

Briggs is scheduled to be sentenced on April 25, Savage is scheduled to be sentenced on May 2.

Koboi was previously arrested in 2015 on unrelated charges and is scheduled to be sentenced in July of this year.
