NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- An entry-level employee in the City of New Rochelle Finance Department was allowed to resign rather than face termination after she admitted to taking $20 from a cash drawer in City Hall. She said he intended to replace the money after she got paid.

The employee had worked for the City on a part-time basis over the past year and had been replaced promoted to a full-time position.
The City did not file charges.
