Woman charged with grand larceny
GLEN – An Amsterdam woman was arrested for withdrawing money from a savings account that did not belong to her, state police said.
Kerry Ann Ellis, 31, of Amsterdam was charged March 20 with third-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree grand larceny, both felonies.
Police said troopers received a complaint in January about multiple unauthorized transactions from a joint savings account at MCT Federal Credit Union. Police said the two people with the account did not authorize the transactions or know anyone named on the withdrawal.
A subpoena was mailed to PayPal’s legal department, police said. PayPal eventually responded by sending “pertinent” information via email, police said.
“Subsequent to Miranda, Ellis provided a statement alleging the matter to be a misunderstanding, or an error on PayPal’s part,” police said.
Ellis was issued a ticket and scheduled to appear in Mohawk Town Court.
