No one wondered back then how the cat lady could afford to feed 50 animals. The BMW SUV raised questions though.
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.

All that for a used car and some video games. Stupid.
Two 22-year-old Peninsula residents were sentenced to jail and probation for stealing an elderly woman’s identification and using it to open credit accounts with which they purchased video games and other entertainment items.
According to prosecutor Jeannine Pacioni, the victim was an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s sufferer. Amanda Spears of Pacific Grove used the woman’s identification to get credit cards and access her financial accounts. She also forged and cashed checks from the Robert H. Down Parent Association.
Theodore Lopez of Pebble Beach pleaded guilty to elder abuse for conspiring with Spears to use the 85-year-old victim’s stolen identification. Both were placed on probation. Spears was ordered to serve 340 days in county jail. Lopez was sentenced to 240 days.
