The former head teller at a Pittsfield credit union has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing almost $60,000 from her employer and concocting a story about a plot to kidnap her teenage daughter to cover up the crime. Felisa Kazimierczak of Adams pleaded guilty Wednesday to a number of charges. Authorities said the 44-year-old woman, who worked at Greylock Federal Credit Union’s Pittsfield branch for 11 years, told police she got a note on her car in March 2012 threatening her 15-year-old daughter with harm unless she handed over $58,000. Prosecutors said Kazimierczak stole to fuel a gambling habit.
