Albany- Two Albany men got away with close to $90,000 from a bank after writing bad checks to a teller who hoped they would pay the money back.

Police say the theft started at Capitol City Bank and Trust on Oglethorpe Boulevard last December.

They say James Adams, 31, wrote bad counter checks to bank teller Linda Hollingsworth, 56. She cashed the checks for Adams saying she hoped he would pay the bank back. Investigators say Hollingsworth did the same thing for Ricky Shipp.

Altogether, the teller cashed close to 90-thousand dollars worth of checks for them. Hollingsworth is charged with forgery and computer theft. Both men are charged with theft by deception.
