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.

Read the Baltimore Sun report.

Not 150K.

4K is the correct amount for the title.
