Woman Arrested for Alleged Financial Elder Abuse

Richmond resident is accused of stealing checks of a woman she had been a caretaker for on Lovell Ave. and then cashing more than $5,000 of those checks.


Mill Valley Police arrested a Richmond woman Thursday on suspicion of stealing checks from an elderly Mill Valley resident she was caring for and cashing them to the tune of more than $5,000.

Yvonne Scott, 57, was taken into custody at Peet’s Coffee & Tea on Throckmorton Ave. downtown at 5 p.m. She faces felony charges of financial elder abuse, grand theft, forgery, and burglary and remains in custody at Marin County Jail on $50,000 bail.

Scott was accused on July 18 of stealing checks from the Lovell Ave. resident for whom she was a private caretaker, police said. Scott allegedly stole the checks as she was leaving the home after she had been terminated five weeks earlier, according to Lt. Ken Dunkel.

Approximately $5,300 in checks were cashed over the past six weeks, police said.
