Caretaker Charged With Bilking Elderly Madison Couple Of Several Hundred Thousand Dollars

Linda Correira, 52, of Milford, charged with larceny in the first degree after year-long investigation by Madison Police Department.

 

This information is provided by the Madison Police Department:

On December 6, 2012, the Madison Police Department, with the cooperation of the Milford Police Department, arrested Linda Correira (DOB 07/25/1960) of 4 Hayes Drive, Milford, on an Arrest Warrant for one violation of Connecticut General Statute 53a-122: Larceny in the First Degree. 

Correira’s arrest comes after nearly a year-long investigation by the Madison Police Department into unauthorized withdrawals from multiple bank accounts belonging to an elderly Madison couple.  Correira allegedly bilked the elderly Madison couple out of several hundred thousand dollars, during the time period of July 2011 through December 2011.  The missing funds include some service fees as well as unauthorized withdrawals.  Correira accessed the couples various accounts while working as an in-home caretaker for the two Madison residents. 

Correira has numerous past arrests for larcenies and other crimes in Milford, Torrington, Winchester, Manchester, Stratford, and Fairfield. 

Correira was unable to post her $75,000 bond and appeared at G.A. 23, New Haven on December 7, 2012 at 0900 hours.

Why was the multiple arrest record not found during the hiring process? Was an Agency involved in the recommendation of the caretaker? Are there bonding requirements for caretakers? If not, should there be?
