PLAINVILLE — A New Britain woman has been charged with fraudulently using the bank account of a Plainville business to attempt to pay her personal bills.

Princess Greene, 34, was charged with first degree identity theft and criminal attempt to larceny for allegedly attempting to transfer $12,537 from the bank account of H&B Woodworking to pay off two Eversource bills and a credit card bill in 2017.

Plainville detectives met with fraud investigators from Farmington Bank after the owner of H&B Woodworking reported the transactions to police on Aug. 20, 2017 and were told that four fraudulent charges appeared to have been attempted by Greene. Three of the transactions were denied or reversed by the bank, however one for $600 was successful.

Police say it is unknown how Greene may have gained access to the bank account information. She was taken into custody by East Hartford police on Nov. 7 and has been transferred to Plainville Police custody. She posted $10,000 bail and is due in New Britain Superior Court on Dec. 15.
