$150,000 missing from Annapolis vault
Annapolis police are investigating the disappearance of $150,000 in checks and cash from a vault in the city's finance department, according to a Baltimore Sun report.
The theft was discovered by a courier who had arrived to pick up a bag containing $149,843.21 in checks and $3,982.59 in cash for a bank deposit, officials said.
The checks, which are stamped "deposit only,” cannot be cashed, Phillip McGowan, a spokesman for Mayor Joshua J. Cohen, said.
Officials are initiating new internal controls to prevent future thefts, the report said.
