Former New Milford, Connecticutt bank teller accused of embezzlement

The former head teller for the Savings Bank of Danbury in New Milford posted a $15,000 bond in Bantam Superior Court Monday following his arraignment on larceny charges.

William Baldwin Jr., 26, admitted to police that he took $16,500 over a period of a year by taking $20- $100 at a time from his cash drawer, then claiming it was transferred to the bank vault. In May, he tried to cover it up by stealing from three savings accounts to make up the shortfall he feared would be uncovered through an audit. His final desperate effort to avoid detection was his undoing, and brought his actions to the attention of bank officials.
Baldwin, who lives in New Milford, had worked for the bank at Kent Road for eight years, rising to the position of head teller last year.
