FORT MYERS, Fla. -- State law enforcement have arrested a Lehigh Acres woman they say withdrew over $200,000 from a customer's bank account while working as a teller.

32-year-old Altagracia Ortuno has been charged with Grand Theft and Criminal Use of Personal Identification Information.

According to Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Ortuno was a teller for BMO-Harris Bank in Bonita Springs when she used the customer's ID info to illegally withdraw approximately $201,000 from their bank account over the course of 15 months.

Ortuno left the bank when the customer reported the theft.  She was later terminated before being arrested Monday morning.

She will be prosecuted by the Office of the State Attorney, 20th Judicial Circuit.
