A 28-year-old Shelton woman is charged with larceny and computer crimes after stealing almost $9,000 from the Bridgeport company where she worked as a bookkeeper and accounts payable manager, according to police.

Leigh Margiano, who worked for Connecticut Tank Removal, Inc. in Bridgeport, is accused of writing four business checks for her own personal gain.

According to the company, three of the checks, which totaled $8,811.91, were made out to Margiano herself, but two were recorded in the computer ledger as having been paid to someone else. They were issued between June and September 2013, police said.

Margiano is charged with second-degree forgery, third-degree larceny and second-degree computer crimes.
