An Annapolis woman has been charged with stealing nearly $19,000 in deposits from the First National Bank branch in the 2000 block of Somerville Road, county police said yesterday.
Anna Marie Lippolis, 24, of the first block of Lafayette Ave., an employee of the bank, was charged with three counts of felony theft. She was arrested at the bank on Monday after being questioned, police said.
Annapolis District Court records show she was released on her own recognizance shortly after 6 p.m. Monday.
Ms. Lippolis is charged with stealing $5,294 on April 4, $6,080 on June 5 and $7,476 on June 12. Each sum represented a cash deposit from the Sam's Club store in the 2100 block of Generals Highway, according to District Court records.
Detective Tracy W. Williams checked records at Sam's Club and at the bank and learned that Ms. Lippolis did not initial a log sheet for each of the missing bags of money, according to court records. No money was stolen from April 6 to June 5, when Ms. Lippolis was on maternity leave, charging documents said.
Ms. Lippolis gave a statement about the thefts after being read her rights, police said.
Police said the money has not been recovered.
