A Beaver, Ohio woman charged with theft from the bank where she worked has been indicted by a Pike County grand jury.


Lorrie A. Thornsberry, 38, of Beaver Pike Road, was indicted on a charge of theft on Tuesday. She was indicted as the result of an investigation which followed a call from her employer.


“On the 21st day of February (2013) officers were called to the First National Bank, Beaver Branch, on what appeared to be an employee theft,” Major Jeremy Masters of the Pike County Sheriff’s Office said. “Mrs. Thornsberry was detained, and later charged with grand theft. The FBI was contacted, and later it was determined that our office would be handling the investigation.”


Masters said Thornsberry posted bond the same day she was arrested and was released. The case is being handled through Pike County Prosecutor Rob Junk’s office. A spokeswoman in the Pike County Clerk of Courts office said Thornsberry is set for arraignment on June 12.
