Christine Ann Cooper, 62, as account trustee, allegedly embezzled the funds over a nine-year period, according to a Police Department news release. She is accused of writing checks to herself from the accounts and falsifying account statements to conceal the theft.

Police said Cooper was arrested without incident Tuesday morning at her place of business in Sacramento. She was taken to the Placer County Jail in Auburn, where she was booked on suspicion of elder abuse/theft from an elder, embezzlement of more than $400 and forgery.
