PITTSBURGH, PA — On August 22, 2023, a resident of California, Pennsylvania, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of theft by a credit union employee. Metz made an initial appearance in Federal Court on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, and was released on $10,000 unsecured bond, said United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan.

The one-count Indictment named Heidi Metz, 40, of California, Pennsylvania as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment presented to the court, from June 2021 through September 2022, Metz stole more than $40,000 from Cal-Ed Federal Credit Union.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 30 years in prison, a fine of not more than $1,000, and a term of supervised release of not more than five years; or any or all of the above. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
