Pinay caregiver in California nabbed for stealing from patients
A Filipina caregiver in Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles County has been arrested for allegedly stealing from her patients.
In a post on Facebook, the Palos Verdes Estates Police urges victims of Ma "Rose" Licuanan to come forward and help them in their investigation on the suspect.
According to the post, Licuanan is currently being held without bail for stealing credit cards from elderly victims while in their service.
Detectives found probable cause to believe that the 49-year-old resident of Torrance, California, took a credit card from the elderly victim who filed a police report against her.
She is believed to have copied other credit card numbers and used them to make fraudulent transactions online.
Police recovered stolen property and credit cards belonging to different victims when they served a search warrant for Licuanan's residence and vehicles on March 21.
The LA County District Attorney's office filed four felony counts and two misdemeanor counts against Licuanan whose aliases include Rosario Licuanan, Marosario Mendoza Licuanan, Maria Licuanan, and Rose Licuanan.
Victims of Licuanan or persons with information on the caregiver were encouraged to contact Detective Sergeant Luke Hellinga at (310) 378-4211. —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
