A Coralville woman has been accused of withdrawing more than $3,000 from her bank account after depositing an empty envelope in it.

Bryisha Gilliams, 23, was charged Feb. 28 with second-degree theft.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Gilliams gave her debit card to a codefendant to make a deposit into her bank account. The codefendant was caught on video making an ATM deposit; however the envelope for the deposit was empty.

The amount that was entered into the account was $4,800. The following day, Gilliams made two cash withdrawals of $3,000 and $655 within 10 minutes of each other at two different credit-union branches, the complaint said.

Gilliams attempted a cash withdrawal a third time at a different branch, however officials told her to return the money. According to the complaint, Gilliams allegedly told the officials that she no longer had the money.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
