Former Sheriff’s Dispatcher Who Refused To Return The $1.2M Mistakenly Placed In Her Bank Account Arrested

Sheesh! A former sheriff’s dispatcher had to learn the hard way. After refusing to return $1.2 million in funds accidentally transferred to her account, the dispatcher was arrested.

According to authorities, Kelyn Spadoni, 33, was arrested on Wednesday on theft, bank fraud, and illegal transmission of monetary funds charges. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office also fired her following her arrest, Fox 32 Chicago reported.

After receiving the mistaken deposit, Spadoni moved the funds to another account and used it to purchase a new car and house.

Authorities say it was a clerical error that caused Charles Schwab to deposit the excessive amount into her brokerage account when it only meant to deposit $82 back in February. The bank tried reclaiming the money, but its attempt was rejected because the funds were no longer available, the sheriff’s office stated.

“She has no legal claim to that money,” Captain Jason Rivarde said of the matter. “Even if it was put in there by mistake. It was an accounting error.”

Spadoni was sued by Charles Schwab & Co. on Tuesday in a federal court. The company had previously tried to reach out to the former dispatcher to have her return the funds but was unsuccessful. As of now, 75% of the funds have been recovered.

She is currently being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on a $50,000 bond.
