Wellsburg woman arrested for grand larceny


The Chemung County Sheriff’s Office has announced the arrest of a 34-year old Wellsburg woman for Grand Larceny in the 3rd Degree, a Class D Felony.

On March 20, Deputies from the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint at the Able 2 located in the Town of Horseheads, when the Administration discovered that multiple unauthorized debit card transactions from an Able 2 client’s checking account occurred between October 2023 and March 2024, totaling over $9,000.

A preliminary investigation was conducted by Deputies and the case was turned over to the Criminal Investigation Division for further investigation.

The investigation revealed Able 2 employee, Amanda L. Potter, on multiple occasions would take the client’s debit card from the unit safe and withdraw several hundred dollars at a time for her personal use from automated teller machines and then return the debit card to the safe.

Potter was arrested for Grand Larceny in the 3rd Degree and released on an appearance ticket to appear in the Town of Horseheads Court at a later date.
