HERCULES -- A 54-year-old man was arrested Thursday morning after police discovered that he stole more than $300,000 from his own mother and spent some of it at casinos, police said.
Angel Robert Garcia, 54, of Hercules, used his mother's personal information to access her bank account, according to a news release from Hercules police. Garcia created multiple fake accounts and used them at several local businesses and casinos throughout California, police said.
Police searching Garcia's Hercules home Thursday morning found electronic devices and documentation that linked to the investigation.
Garcia's mother, an 84-year-old woman who was not identified by police, reported fraudulent activity in her bank account in March, police said.
Garcia was arrested on suspicion of financial elder abuse, forgery, grand theft, unauthorized access to computers and check fraud. He is being held at County Jail in Martinez on $215,000 bail.
