    A home health care aide is accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from her elderly client in Shelton.

    Shelton police arrested 30-year-old Jennifer Poitevien Wednesday.

    According to police, Poitevien worked as a health care aide to an 83-year-old woman with dementia. Investigators said Poitevien used the victim’s card to make ATM withdrawals, and also opened a credit card in the victim’s name. Police said she stole over $22,000 from the victim’s bank accounts from April 2018 until now.

    The investigation began when the victim’s son reported the money missing from her accounts.

    Poitevien was charged with first-degree larceny, credit card theft and first-degree identity theft. She was released on a $5,000 bond and is due in court on May 1.
