The former ATM custodian of First Hawaiian Bank’s Kapaa branch is going to federal prison for 15 months for stealing more than $140,000 from the bank’s automated teller machine over a five-year period.

U.S. District Judge Leslie E. Kobayashi handed down the sentence Monday. She gave Shelli Ornellas until after the holidays to turn herself in to begin serving the sentence. Kobayashi also ordered Ornellas to repay First Hawaiian Bank $140,329.

Ornellas, 36, pleaded guilty to embezzlement by a bank employee for stealing the money from 2008 to this past February.
