BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Bismarck police have arrested a teller at BNC Bank on suspicion of embezzling from her employer.

Authorities suspect the 24-year-old woman embezzled about $8,000. Investigators say the woman admitted taking the money over the last two months to support her heroin habit.

Authorities she was taking money from her cash drawer and altering records so the drawer would appear to balance at the end of the day. She’s facing a felony theft charge and possessing drug paraphernalia. Police say she had a device for using heroin tucked in her bra.
