LOPATCONG TOWNSHIP, Penn. – A teller at Baker FCU was arrested for allegedly stealing more than $73,000 from the accounts of several elderly customers over the last five years.

Lisa Frace, 32, was charged with seven counts of theft, 35 counts of forgery and 35 counts uttering a forged document. She was released to await court action in Warren County.

Frace’s teller drawer turned out to be about $74,000 short, and she made about 75 withdrawals from the credit union, often forging members’ names on withdrawal slips, police said.

Frace signed up several of her members for online banking, cutting them off from mailed account information, to hide the scheme, police said.
