Former Bank Manager Charged With Larceny By Conversion

WARREN (WWJ) – The former manager of a Warren bank branch faces allegations that he embezzled thousands of dollars from his own customers.

WWJ’s Sandra McNeill reports that Warren police say 46-year-old Robert Stralko convinced a 73-year-old man to put $27,000 in a certificate of deposit at the Huntington Bank branch where he worked. 

The victim apparently became convinced he was being scammed.  Bank officials conducted an internal investigation and uncovered other acts of alleged fraud by Stralko.

Stralko has been charged with one count of what’s called a larceny by conversion.  That’s a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. 

Stralko is now free on bond.
