A former bank officer appeared in Gilpin County Court last week where she was sentenced for stealing over $275,000 from the Black Hawk branch of the Credit Union of the Rockies. Autumn Rene Guillot, 31, of Central City, was sentenced to five years community corrections and ordered to pay $275,795 in restitution. She was remanded into custody pending available housing at the community corrections facility. Guillot was employed as assistant branch manager at the Credit Union of the Rockies during 2011 when the theft occurred. She was one of two full-time employees at that particular branch. Bank officials became suspicious and contacted Black Hawk Police in November 2011 when an unannounced “spot” audit uncovered discrepancies in their ledger. Deposits listed in the branch’s general ledger had not been received by the clearinghouse. This ledger was maintained by Autumn Guillot. Prosecutors asked for a prison sentence at the sentencing hearing on April 26. Guillot stole money from the vault, a little at a time, throughout 2011. She altered the ledger each time. Prosecutors told the court that Guillot was a regular gambler at Gilpin County casinos in 2011. It is not known exactly how she spent the money, but investigators found that she had $73,000 in carded gambling and believe that she used some of the stolen funds for gambling. Guillot asked for leniency saying that her young child needed her, in spite of evidence that she often left him at home while she went to the casinos to gamble.
