Sheriff: Oneida Co. woman stole over $40k in checks from her work, fled to Oregon

The woman allegedly stole checks from a Town of Lee medical billing company

According to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, a woman who had previously been living in the city of Rome stole over $40,000 in checks from a nearby business before being caught in Oregon.

54-year-old Mary Beth Ferlo was arraigned on Wednesday on charges stemming from an investigation into stolen checks from a Town of Lee medical billing company.

Deputies say Ferlo worked in that office.

The theft was reported to sheriff’s deputies in June of 2016 after employees at the business noticed that the checks were missing.

According to investigators, Ferlo stole several checks and deposited the stolen checks into her bank accounts. The sum of the checks totaled over $40,000.

Ferlo was charged with third-degree grand larceny, a felony, and fourth-degree petit larceny, a misdemeanor.

She was sent to the Oneida County Jail on no bail.
