Carer of 103-year-old blind and deaf woman charged with stealing

A 52-YEAR-OLD Morley woman will face court in May after allegedly stealing more than $25,000 from a 103-year-old woman she cared for.

A police spokeswoman said the woman was employed by a professional care provider and cared for the elderly Mt Lawley woman, who is legally blind and partially deaf.

“It is alleged between December 2012 and January 2015 the woman unlawfully accessed the victim’s bank account about 76 times and withdrew funds in excess of $25,000,” she said.

The woman was charged with stealing as a servant and is due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court on May 26.
