Carrollton Bancorp reported yesterday that its second-quarter earnings were practically wiped out by a $1.2 million after-tax loss from an alleged check-kiting scheme by one of its commercial customers. The community bank said its profit for the three months that ended June 30 decreased 91 percent to $58,000, or 2 cents per diluted share, from $634,000, or 22 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter last year. Still, the bank's second-quarter net income was higher than the company's initial estimate of $18,000 when it first alleged the check-kiting operation last month.

Carrollton Bancorp said yesterday that it suffered $1.2 million in losses, which nearly wiped out second-quarter profits at the Baltimore-based community bank, from a check-kiting scheme that might have victimized another area bank and a money-order business. Robert A. Altieri, chief executive officer at Carrollton, said the bank suspects the scheme was undertaken by one of its commercial deposit customers, A&B Check Cashing, which operated a string of stores in Baltimore that offered a variety of financial services.

When the state Department of Housing and Community Development's 380 employees pack up and move from Crownsville to New Carrollton in 2015, fewer women will work out on their lunch break at Curves. It also may mean fewer people getting their cars repaired, having their dry cleaning done or picking up lunch at local businesses along Generals Highway. "It's going to hurt our local economy," said Jodi Kubisiak, manager of Curves, less than a mile from the housing department's office.
