ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The St. Augustine Police Department arrested a 30-year-old woman after she deposited 55 grams of marijuana along with her bank deposit Tuesday.
Police arrested Kimberley Kelley at the Regions Bank on South Ponce de Leon Boulevard after she made a commercial deposit for her company Dunkin Donuts that had a little something extra.
Mixed in with the bank deposit was over two ounces of marijuana, according to police.
When it was found, the weed was locked in the vault by bank employees. Tellers told Kelley her deposit slip would not be available until the next day and she then asked if she had left anything else in the bag with the deposit.
The bank teller told her there was an additional item in the bag. Kelley then asked for the additional item back. She was informed by the bank teller that she could not have the item back.
While Kelley was inside talking to the bank manager, officers with the St. Augustine Police Department arrived at the bank. They tested the green, leafy substance to make sure it was in fact marijuana.
Once officers had a positive test result that it was in fact marijuana, Kelley was arrested and taken to the St. Johns County Jail. She was charged with possession of marijuana and was later released on $5,000 bond.
