Police Arrest In-Home Caregiver Suspected of Defrauding Client

Roseville Police arrested 34-year-old Farrah Fawcett Lavulo on suspicion of using her elder client's debit and credit cards to make unauthorized transactions.

Roseville Police arrested an in-home care provider Wednesday, Oct. 3, suspected of using her former client's bank cards to make more than $1,000 worth of unauthorized purchases.

Farrah Fawcett Lavulo, 34, of Sacramento, was arrested after a 69-year-old Roseville resident found unauthorized transactions on her debit and credit cards last month, which Roseville Police believe were made by Lavulo.

Lavulo was one of the woman's in-home caretakers while she recovered from surgery, according to Roseville Police.

Roseville Police investigated and arrested Lavulo on suspicion of using the victim's 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 is being held in the Placer County Jail on suspicion of identity theft and defrauding an elder or dependent adult.  Her bail is set at $20,000.
