Police arrested a Porterville woman accused of taking approximately $28,000 from an 87-year-old woman who was in her care.
The suspect, identified as 54-year-old Mary Louise Moore, is in custody of the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department.
The Porterville Police Department reports that on Thursday, detectives received a referral from Tulare County Adult Protective Services alleging potential financial abuse that had been occurring since 2010.
The crime was said to have taken place at an assisted living home in the 500 block of West Kanai Avenue in Porterville. Moore, a caregiver at the facility, was identified as the suspect.
Detectives contacted the victim’s family members and found that about $28,000 was missing from her bank accounts.
Moore was contacted and reportedly confessed to the crime.
According to the PPD, Moore said she had obtained the money without the victim’s permission and gambled $12,000 at the casino. She also said she had placed $9,000 of the victim’s money in a safe in her home.
The cash was recovered by detectives and returned to the victim’s family.
Moore was taken into custody of the Bob Wiley Detention Facility on suspicion of financial elder abuse.
