Police say CT woman stole 600K from husband with elaborate plan
Did you think your relationship was having problems? In one of the lowest things we’ve heard in a while, a woman just outside the Hudson Valley is accused of stealing a large sum of money from her husband. It took a lot of time and intrigue for this plan to hatch too, according to Insider. This is how she was able to convince him that nothing was going so incredibly messed up about it.
The Washington Post says the Connecticut woman has stolen more than $ 600,000 from her husband in the past 20 years. Police said they had stolen it in the form of pension checks, workers’ compensation and Social Security income. What the authorities continue to say is quite puzzling. The woman was able to commit fraud under her own husband’s nose by convincing him that he had Alzheimer’s disease. According to her, he just didn’t remember where the money had gone.
… she fabricated this scenario to prevent [her husband] to go inside the bank and find out the low balance in their accounts.
Her plan finally began to fall apart when her daughter found documents lying around. Insider says the mother was arrested by East Haven Police Department investigators and is charged with first-degree robbery and third-degree forgery.
In other news, NBC says that a former member of the New York State assembly pleaded guilty Monday to impaired driving. What makes this somewhat odd is that not only did the politician initially blame his own wife for the incident, but he had just written a column in the newspaper warning of the dangers of driving in state. intoxicated a week earlier.
Court documents said he later admitted to drinking four or five cocktails at a Pittsford restaurant earlier that night.
