June 5, 2018

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut mother and daughter are facing multiple charges for allegedly stealing the checkbooks of two elderly women and buying furniture and groceries.

The Hartford Courant reports that 60-year-old Cynthia Williams and 39-year-old Sharonda Williams, both of Hartford, face multiple charges including larceny, identity theft and forgery.

Farmington police say the older woman worked for a home health agency that cared for the alleged victims.

Police say she stole the checkbooks and gave them to her daughter. One alleged victim lost $27,000.

Cynthia Williams told police someone else could have stolen the checkbooks because other people were in the homes.

Mother and daughter are both free on $50,000 bail. Cynthia Williams no longer works for the home health agency.
