ALBANY, Ga. -

A former bank teller has been sentenced to four years in prison on identity theft and embezzlement charges.

U.S. Attorney Michael Moore, of the Middle District of Georgia, says 26-year-old Victoria Metz is also ordered to pay more than $79,300 in restitution to Colony Bank. Authorities say Metz worked as a bank teller in Leesburg - about 10 miles north of Albany - and cashed $79,361 worth of stolen checks from the Internal Revenue Service.
    
Metz told investigators she occasionally was given a cut of the proceeds from a third party who supplied her with the stolen checks.
    
Aside from prison time and restitution, Metz is ordered to serve three years of supervised release.
