NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTIC and AP) - A Connecticut woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling about $370,000 from her former employer.
 
Federal prosecutors say 36-year-old Lydia Cabrera, of Southington, pleaded guilty Wednesday to bank fraud.

Authorities say Cabrera was a bookkeeper at A2Z Home Medical Supplies between August 2016 and August 2018.
 
On more than 200 occasions during that time, she claimed customers had requested refunds. Then she input her personal debit card information as the card to which the funds should be returned.
 
Prosecutors say she started stealing from the company just 10 days after she was hired.
 
She faces up to 30 years in prison at sentencing scheduled for Feb. 11. She remains free pending sentencing.
