DES MOINES (AP) - An Ankeny woman is charged with robbing a Des Moines bank and embezzling money from another bank where she was a bookkeeper.

She was then charged with theft at First Bank in West Des Moines. The bank reported the embezzlement in October. Police say Bejtovic knew she was being investigated when she allegedly robbed the other bank.
