An Iowa City woman was arrested after she allegedly stole more than $3,100 from US Bank.

Jessica Elizabeth Maclin, 24, 1958 Broadway Apt. 5A, was charged Wednesday with second-degree theft.

According to a complaint from Iowa City police, Maclin opened a US Bank account in February.

Soon after, checks were allegedly deposited through an ATM into Maclin’s account from a closed account.

After these deposits, an immediate withdrawal was made, causing a negative balance, reports said.

Maclin was reportedly seen on bank-security footage making a withdrawal of $2,100. She later reportedly admitted to participating in fraudulent acts, saying her boyfriend was also guilty, according to police.

Second-degree theft in excess of $1,000 but not exceeding $10,000 is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
