Elderly Woman had £10,000 Taken By Carer (UK)

ByJulian Makey

A callous carer plundered nearly £10,000 from a vulnerable elderly woman and used some of the money to buy herself a new moped.
Beverley Chabot, 37, milked the 79-year-old’s bank account on an almost daily basis, magistrates at Huntingdon were told.
Chabot, of Ramsey Road, St Ives, admitted obtaining £2,540 by false representation by stealing cheques from Nora Anderson and stealing £7,320 from her. The thefts, totalling £9,860, took place between May and July.
Magistrates sent the case to the Crown court for sentencing because their powers of punishment were deemed insufficient. Chabot was remanded on bail.
Penny Cannon, prosecuting, said: “We are talking about a very serious amount here. There was an elderly, vulnerable victim and the defendant was in a position of trust. She was a carer for Mrs Anderson and Mrs Anderson relied upon her for her daily needs.”
She told the court that Mrs Anderson’s sons had power of attorney over her affairs and that the privately funded care at her home in St Ives involved two carers.
Mrs Cannon said that in July it was noticed that money was missing from the bank account of Mrs Anderson, whose memory was declining.
Chabot, one of the carers, had been seen riding a new moped.
Mrs Cannon said Mrs Anderson’s bank card was also missing. It was thought to have been mislaid at first, but a bank statement showed withdrawals.
Mrs Cannon said: “It was found that a lot of money had been taken from Mrs Anderson’s bank account by way of cash withdrawals from a cash machine. It was roughly £8,000.”
She said Chabot had made 34 cash withdrawals over 32 days from a machine at the Spar shop.
The court heard £1,700 had been found hidden in two bags in the victim’s garden.
