PORT RICHEY — A former bank teller at BankAtlantic is accused of stealing $4,842 from her cash drawer.
Authorities launched the investigation back in February, after a "no notice audit" revealed money was missing from the drawer of Yesenia G. Marrero, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Marrero worked at the branch at 8522 U.S. 19.
In a written statement obtained by a BankAtlantic fraud investigator, Marrero admitted taking the money for her own use, the report said.
Deputies contacted Marrero, 24, of New Port Richey through her attorney, who arranged for her to turn herself in Monday at the Land O'Lakes Jail. She was charged with theft by fraud and was released on $2,000 bail.
Her arrest report indicates she now works as a clerk at an attorney's office.
