Shepherdsville Police arrest woman wanted for stealing over $10K

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a woman responsible for the theft of over $10,000 from local banks and businesses has been arrested by Shepherdsville Police.

According to an arrest warrant, 32-year-old Amanda Herbst was working for Vantiv -- a credit card processing company -- from Aug. 12, 2013 to Oct. 31, 2013, when she "manipulated an internal process" to obtain the money.

Police say Herbst was a customer service representative for Vantiv when she initiated fraudulent disputes on several pre-paid card accounts. She would allegedly circumvent the dispute process, allowing her to receive provisional credits on card transactions by fraudulently disputing legitimate transactions.

"This gave the card holder access to double the funds," police say.

Herbst allegedly admitted to posting falsified disputes to three card accounts: her own, her husband's and her sister-in-law's. Police say this caused a total loss of $10,549.

A warrant was issued for Herbst's arrest on Thursday, April 24, and Shepherdsville Police arrested her April 30. She is currently being held in the Bullitt County Detention Center.

She is charged -- in Jefferson County -- with theft by deception and using a computer to engage in an unlawful transaction.
