A former credit union lending manager pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Hartford, Conn., May 12 for embezzling more than $840,000 from the $220 million 360 Federal Credit Union in Windsor Locks.

Pamela Mallory, 42, of Enfeld, opened five different HELOCs in the name of a credit union member from 2009 to 2016. She increased the credit limit of those HELOCs on at least 15 occasions without knowledge or consent, according to federal prosecutors.
