TUXEDO, N.Y. -- Over the course of three years, police in the Town of Tuxedo say 57-year-old Deborah Marcarelli, an assistant manager at the JP Morgan Chase Bank on Route 17, stole $130,000 from the bank ATM.
"While she was asked to go on vacation, an outside auditor came in and realized there was money missing," said Detective Stefan Christian, Town of Tuxedo Police Department.
Detectives say they began investigating Marcarelli back in August after JP Morgan Chase's Global Security and Investigation Unit brought the missing money to their attention.
"Through investigation, we determined a female assistant branch manager of Deborah Marcarelli was involved," said Detective Christian.
Marcarelli's job, detectives say, was to insert the cash into the ATM, while another employee watched her to make sure the money went into the machine.
"Because she gained the trust of the other employees, the other employees sometimes didn't do their job. While they weren't looking, she would take a strap of money, which was wrapped in $2,000, and secure it to another location where she would grab it at another date," said Detective Christian.
Marcarelli has been charged with second degree grand larceny and two counts of falsifying business records, all felonies. Detectives say the Orange County Assistant District Attorney's office told them Marcarelli might take a plea deal with the possibility of one to three years in jail and restitution.
"It was a group effort. A job well done," said Detective Christian.
