CVS clerk that had a cat in the car trunk.
Ilagene “Jeanie” Quaglia is accused of stealing from a 82-year-old Pacific Grove man who she cared for and managed his rental properties.
It was a neighbor and close friend who noticed money missing and alerted police earlier this year.
“A reverse mortgage, lots and lots of checks that were written out to herself by her with George’s name forged on them, and a bunch of rental money never deposited,” Kristin Houde said.
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.
“It did make me wonder from day one, how does somebody who’s a clerk at CVS, drive a BMW SUV that’s probably worth 70 grand?” Houde said.
Elder Abuse On Top Of Animal Abuse
Patricia Conklin, 47, was convicted of three counts of elder abuse at a jury trial in August 2013. At the time, she was placed on felony probation with the eight-year prison sentence suspended pending successful completion of probation.
In July, Conklin was found to be in violation of several terms and conditions of here probation, prompting imposition of the full eight-year sentence.
The second and third counts related to endangerment of her mother on March 9, 2013. On that day the defendant went to a skilled nursing facility where her mother was recovering from the surgery. Conklin went to the facility and demanded the release of her mother while accusing the staff of wanting her mother’s money.
“She also made threatening statements to the staff. She then took her mother home where she had failed to prepare for her mother’s return,” the District Attorney’s Office said in a release. “The home had numerous tripping hazards, no assistive devices to help her mother and no qualified nursing care. The defendant also told police the toilets weren’t working.”
