BALTIMORE (AP) -- A bank teller who conspired to use customers' information to order fraudulent checks and steal money their accounts has been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Jayad Zainab Ester Conteh of Glenarden was also ordered to pay more than $36,000 in restitution at sentencing Tuesday in federal court in Baltimore.

According to evidence presented at trial, Conteh was a teller at an unidentified bank when she looked up account information without authorization.

Prosecutors say Conteh gave the information to her conspirators, who opened fraudulent checking accounts and withdrew money.
