You're both skipping the "with intent to deprive the owner thereof" part of the law. If you simply leave the money untouched in your account, how can it be proven that you intended to deprive the owner of it? Though I'd say the instant you transferred it out, even into another account in the same bank, you're probably in violation of that law.
