PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - An in-home caregiver in Prescott has been arrested for allegedly forging checks from a 95-year-old client and depositing them into her own account.

Prescott police say 21-year-old Jasmine Moore, of Paulden, has been booked into the Yavapai County Jail on suspicion of forgery, fraud schemes, theft and attempted theft.

Police say they began a fraud investigation in November after the victim’s daughter reported that three checks were missing from her mother’s checkbook.

Bank officials say an unknown suspect used a mobile app to deposit $6,000 in checks into an account.

It was unclear Friday if Moore has an attorney.
