According to Bridgeport Police Det. Frank Podpolucha, who works in the police financial crimes unit, Leigh Margiano, 28, was charged by warrant with second-degree forgery, third-degree larceny and second-degree computer crimes.
Police Spokesman Bill Kaempffer said that on Jan. 9, Bridgeport Financial Crimes Unit received a larceny complaint from Connecticut Tank Removal, Inc., a Bridgeport business at 118 Burr St., reporting employee theft.
Specifically, the company stated that Margiano issued four business checks valuing $8,811.91 for her personal benefit. Margiano's job responsibilities included bookkeeping and accounts payable management.
The checks were issued between June and September, 2013.
Three of the checks were made out to Margiano herself. In two of those checks, the computer ledger incorrectly showed the check paid to someone else, police said.
Margiano was released on a written promise to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on Jan. 31.
