Otsego Woman Arrested for Stealing

Posted: Updated:

A 21 year old woman from Johannesburg is in serious trouble, after state police say she used credit cards that belonged to two elderly clients while she worked for the Otsego County Commission on Aging.

Troopers say the woman provided home care services and obtained the credit cards while working in the homes of both victims in Otsego Township of Otsego County. She was arrested Thursday.

Police say their investigation started in June of last year, and that the woman purchased over a thousand dollars worth of goods, charged to their accounts, without their knowledge.

She is now out on bond awaiting arraignment.
