The manager of an assisted-living facility in Mill Valley who was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of fraud, identity theft and financial elder abuse of a resident is scheduled to be arraigned in Marin County Superior Court on Christmas Eve.
Mill Valley police have released more information about the alleged crimes.
Marianita is suspected of defrauding more than $40,000 from an 80-year-old female resident of the 49-bed Marin Terrace assisted-living facility at 297 Miller Ave. during the last several months, Detective Sgt. Paul Wrapp said.
She allegedly stole the elderly woman’s identity, applied and received credit cards in her name and bought retail goods and personal and home items, Wrapp said. The woman has been living at Marin Terrace for about six months.
Most of the allegedly stolen money was spent, Wrapp said.
Police have identified one victim so far and are determining whether there are other victims.
