Urbana woman charged with thefts

URBANA — An Urbana woman who allegedly stole money from people she knew on two different occasions has been criminally charged with two felonies.

Marjorie Hill, 42, who listed an address in the 2000 block of Fletcher Street, was charged with theft over $500 for allegedly using the debit card of an 86-year-old Urbana man to make unauthorized purchases earlier this month.

An Urbana police report said Hill told the man she needed medication from Walgreens and he let her have his bank debit card to pay for a single prescription on July 3.

The report said Hill did not return the man's card for a couple of days and when he received his bank statement on Wednesday, learned that she had made almost $1,100 in unauthorized purchases. He then called the police.

In a separate case, Hill was charged with theft with a prior forgery conviction for allegedly stealing money from a woman's purse while they were in the restroom at County Market, 1819 Philo Road, U, on April 9.

In that case, the 57-year-old Philo woman knew Hill, who allegedly grabbed cash and prescription medication from the woman's purse.

Judge Richard Klaus set Hill's bond at a total of $50,000 and ordered her to be back in court Sept. 4.
