Caretakers Arrested for Exploiting Vulnerability

The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation following an anonymous tip, uncovering allegations of financial exploitation against a wheelchair-bound husband and wife in Grass Valley.

Arrests were made of a 29-year-old woman and a 44-year-old woman, accused of individually pilfering significant sums, $15,000 and $20,000 respectively, over a four-month period.

Authorities highlighted the suspects’ access to sensitive financial data, indicating a betrayal of trust as the motive behind the theft, echoing the sentiment expressed by Ashley Quadros, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.
