TELLER CONFESSES AGAIN
Supposed Victim of Holdup Arrested
for $2-0,070 Embezzlement,
CEDAR RAPIDS. Is.. Aug. 1J. Leo
Perrln, deposed .paying- teller of the
Cedar Rapids National Bank, waa un
der arrest tonight, charged with em
bezzlement of 120,070 from the institu
tion. He was taken into custody after
he had confessed for the second time
that the money lost by the bank Aug-
ust 4, supposedly in a holdup, really
was taken by him.
According to bank officials, he ex
plained, however, that the money waa
not obtained on August 4. Half of it,
they say, waa taken a year ago, and
the remainder August 3. The bogus
holdup, Perrin is quoted as saying, was
staged the day following the second
theft, as he feared discovery.
The second confession was made in
the directors' room of the bank to
