A Euclid woman was arraigned on Friday morning on charges that she allegedly stole nearly $150,000 from a Seven Hills man over the course of 23-months.
Amy Tyburski, 31, of Euclid, entered a not guilty plea to charges of theft and telecommunications fraud.
The charges stem from alleged crimes that occurred from July 2009 through June 3, 2011.
Cuyahoga County prosecutors allege that during that time Tyburski withdrew a total of $49,893.03 from a 65-year-old victim’s checking account.
During that same time frame Tyburski is accused of withdrawing $95,837.65 from the same victim’s annuity account.
According to Maria Russo, Public Information Officer with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office, the victim contacted Seven Hills Police in June 2011 regarding the alleged crimes and an investigation was opened.
Tyburski was taken into custody by authorities on January 10, 2012.
She is currently being held on a $10,000 bond awaiting her first pretrial, which is set for February 8, 2012 before Judge John Russo.
Tyburski faces between nine to 36 months in prison if found guilty of all charges.
