ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a new employee of an Oro Valley care home is accused of stealing items from vulnerable adults.

Oro Valley police say 25-year-old Monica Garibay was arrested Sunday and booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of theft and trafficking in stolen property.

Police say the department was contacted Oct. 8 about several thefts from residents of the Brookdale Senior Care Living facility.

They say all the residents of the facility are adults with diminished memory capacity.

With the help of the center’s management, investigators identified Garibay as a possible suspect.

Detectives were able to locate one of the stolen items at a pawn shop and connected it to Garibay.

It was unclear Tuesday if Garibay has a lawyer yet.
