The Office of the United States Attorney has filed a criminal information charging Jeannie M. Bellar with embezzlement.  The indictment states:
 

Jeannie M. Bellar, being an employee with First Financial Bank . . . did steal and embezzle the sume of approximately SEVENTEEN THOUSAND ($17,000.00) DOLLARS . . .and without authority converted it to her own use.

It is unknown whether Bellar has been arrested but it would be unusual for the US Attorney to announce an indictment without first arranging for the arrest or surrender of the Defendant.

    I wonder if the same time frames happened to McDermott’s good friend David Woerpel? Maybe that would shorten the time between receiving $6,000 and his arrest?

    I used to work in a Hammond Bank. One of the tellers was stealing money and all of us had to undergo questioning and lie detector tests. It was quite an ordeal. The sad part was afterward the bank got her a job with Ford so she could repay them! A better paying job than the rest of us! In that case I’d have to say that crime paid!
