Caregiver Arrested for Theft
Officers with the Johnson City Police Department arrested Jama and Tony Curtis after discovering the pair had financially exploited two elderly victims. Police say while acting as a caregiver for elderly, Jama Curtis wrote numerous checks and withdrew money from the victimís account. She had permission to withdraw funds, but only for care of the victims. Instead she used the money for her own every day expenses. She also paid money to a business owned by Tony Curtis for work which was never authorized or completed. A four month investigation showed at least $200,000.00 in fraudulent transactions were made on the victimís account within an eight month period. The pair face numerous charges and are being held in lieu of a $92,000.00 bond each pending a Criminal Court appearance next Thursday.
