GeneseeSun - "Two village residents apparently crossed paths with a police officer within a mile of Walmart, where they had allegedly just taken about $111 in merchandise.
According to a press release from Geneseo Police Chief Eric Osganian, Kathleen McDonald, 64, and Kristin McDonald, 35, were both charged with misdemeanor Petit Larceny.
Police allege that the pair took the items from the store on Volunteer Drive and got in their car to drive away, but not before Walmart employees spotted them and gave a description of their vehicle to police.
A Livingston County Sheriff’s deputy stopped the car on Lima Road nearby while responding to the call.
It is alleged that the pair stole $111.37 in merchandise, specifically food items and four pairs of jeans.
Both were released to appear in Geneseo Village Court at a later date."
WHEC - "A Troy woman is facing charges after state police say she stole $160,000 while working as a bank teller.
Alicia Smarro worked as a bank teller at Bank of America. Troopers say Smarro abused her position and fraudulently withdrew approximately $160,000 from two savings accounts belonging to a customer. State police say Smarro then deposited the stolen money into her personal bank accounts. The alleged thefts took place from March 2016 – March 2017.
Troopers say the victim has since been reimbursed for their loss by Bank of America. Smarro was previously fired by Bank of America due to an unrelated matter, according to state police. State police arrested Smarro on Dec. 4 and charged her with grand larceny, falsifying business records, identity theft, and scheme to defraud. She was arraigned at City of Albany Court and remanded to Albany County Correctional on $10,000 cash/bond bail.
Smarro is scheduled to reappear in court on Dec. 8. "
