Ilagene “Jeanie” Quaglia is accused of stealing from a 82-year-old Pacific Grove man who she cared for and managed his rental properties.
After a six month investigation, prosecutors charged Quaglia with three felony counts of elder theft, forgery, and identity theft. The neighbor believes the 61-year-old woman may have stolen more than $100,000.
Quaglia is on probation after pleading guilty to animal cruelty charges two years ago. Humane officers found 48 dogs and cats living in filth inside her Monterey home. When they arrested her at work, she had a cat locked in the trunk of her car. The Monterey house was condemned.

A small historic home in Pacific Grove was declared uninhabitable Wednesday after authorities found it crammed with dogs and cats in “shocking” conditions, the SPCA for Monterey County said.
The house was cluttered with piles of clothing, trash and garage, along with feces and urine, the SPCA said.
There were 18 dogs, including four small puppies, locked in three small back rooms. The stench of ammonia from urine was so strong that fire officials recommended that animal rescuers use protective gear.
Two cats were also taken from the home in the 400 block of Fountain Avenue.

She said the trapper in this case did not appear to be acting maliciously, thought he was trapping feral cats, and was unaware of the municipal ordinance.

They knocked the flames down quickly enough to prevent their spreading to the downstairs unit or the detached apartment to the rear, according to Gunter. No one was injured, and the occupant’s four cats also escaped unharmed.
Although they were innocent bystanders, the cats are indirectly responsible. The resident had built a plywood contraption to hold catnapping baskets in the sun room, and a piece of the wood was quite close to the electric wall heater, according to Gunter, who investigated the cause and origin of the blaze.

Charlie the cat had developed a huge fan base and was featured in numerous cat publications, including a full-page photo that graced a magazine called Cats & Kittens.
Charlie the cat even had his own bank account, which was spawned after customers at the Holman Building started making contributions for Charlie’s upkeep. Withdrawals from the account involved getting Charlie to “sign” the withdrawal slips with a paw print.
And though he was a glamor puss, Charlie still had a bit of the tom in him, serving as the ferocious watchcat against the dogs who might wander into his turf.
