A Fairfield woman working as a caregiver for a hospice patient  allegedly accessed her bank account and removed funds repeatedly over the
last three months, Vacaville police said this weekend.

Erlinda Carpio Ignacio, 52, was arrested Friday after investigators determined she had allegedly accessed the account of her alleged victim 55 times and removed funds without permission, Sgt. Charlie Spruill said Saturday.

Ignacio was working as a caregiver through Genuine Home Companion,
a Vallejo-based home health care provider, at the time of her arrest.

Police also learned she had prior arrests and convictions for check fraud, narcotics, possessing stolen property and burglary, Spruill
said.

Ignacio was arrested on suspicion of 55 felony counts of fraudulent use of a
credit card, commercial burglary, elder abuse, identity theft and grand
theft.

She remained behind bars in lieu of $308,333, Spruill said.

I hope they throw the book at her if she did this, sad

Apparently the care giver company didn't check Ignacio out. Or were they accomplices in this scam? At any rate the company needs to be put out of business.
