MARIETTA, Ga. – A Wells Fargo Bank employee was arrested in Georgia on September 28.

The Marietta Police Department says at 11:30 p.m. an undercover officer saw a suspicious man wearing gloves, a mask, and a hooded sweatshirt at a Wells Fargo ATM.

The man appeared to make a transaction and sprinted back to a vehicle that was parked about 100 yards away.

The officer called for marked units to stop the suspicious activity, police say.

Police were then able to pull into the parking lot and conduct a traffic stop to the suspect in the vehicle.

Kwasi Adadevoh was the only person inside the vehicle. Police say there were several bank documents on the passenger seat.

After initial questioning, Adadevoh was detained for further investigation. During the investigation police determined that the suspect was a Wells Fargo Bank employee and he was committing fraudulent activity with multiple accounts by using customer’s banking information.

Police also collected a felony amount of  amphetamines and marijuana in Adadevoh’s vehicle.

Officers have turned over the fraudulent activity to the Wells Fargo Fraud Department for further investigation.

The Marietta Police Department urges the community to monitor their bank accounts daily to ensure you don’t become a victim.

This incident comes to light after Wells Fargo has recently been scrutinized for a fake account scandal.
