P.G. Woman Arrested, Accomplice In Elder Abuse, Theft

She and her partner bought cell phones, video games and a used VW with money allegedly stolen from grandmother.

Theodore Lopez and Pacific Grove resident Amanda Spears, both 22, were arrested Sunday on charges of elder abuse, identity theft, burglary, grand theft and conspiracy, and taken to Monterey County Jail.

After Rodriguez identified the suspects, deputies arrested Lopez in Marina and Spears in Pacific Grove, and booked them in to Monterey County Jail. While Monterey County Superior Court records indicate this is the first local case against Lopez, Spears appears in multiple files, including numerous traffic violations, two misdemeanor cases filed in June and September of 2009, and a lawsuit she filed Sept. 7 of this year.
