A 67-year-old Trumbull woman kept several hundreds of thousands of dollars in a safe deposit box at Chase Bank, 456 Monroe Turnpike, and told police it was hard to close when she added more money to it in July of 2012. On Tuesday, she told police all of her savings were gone.
Due to their pending investigation, police would not release the exact amount of money stolen.
The theft was discovered on Jan. 19. The woman told officers she had the box for 10 years and that her rent was up-to-date, police said, adding the bank confirmed that.
A limited number of people at the bank have access to the safe deposit boxes, according to the report.
