An in-home care provider has been arrested for using stolen bank cards.
Farrah Fawcett Lavulo, 34, was arrested Wednesday by Roseville police for using the bank cards without permission of a woman for which she was rendering care. She was booked in jail on suspicion of identity theft and defrauding an elder or dependent adult.
Lavulo is suspected of using the bank cards to make unauthorized purchases and withdrawals totaling more than $1,000 -- obtaining cash, meals and prepaid jail telephone credits for her incarcerated boyfriend.
Lavulo had cared for a 69-year-old Roseville woman who was recovering from surgery. The woman contacted police when she found unauthorized transactions on her debit and credit cards.
