WESTPORT, Conn. — A housekeeper allegedly did a little cleaning out of a client's account in December, Westport Police said.
Olga Rincon, 63, of Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree forgery and sixth-degree larceny.
The homeowner filed a complaint in December that checks had been written and signed in her name, police said. She suspected the housekeeper had done it because no one else had access to the home, police said.
The checks totaled $500, police said.
Westport officers obtained the video surveillance from the People’s Bank in Bridgeport where one of the checks was cashed and were able to positively identify Rincon as the woman cashing the forged check, police said. A warrant was then submitted to Norwalk Court for Rincon’s arrest.
She was stopped while driving in Westport after an officer noticed that a brake light was out, police said. It was discovered that there was a warrant for her arrest and she was taken into custody.
Police said she is wanted by Guilford police on similar charges.
Rincon's bond was set at $10,000 in the Westport case, and her first scheduled court date is Feb. 8.
