Caregiver of elderly Dewey man arrested for theft, forgery

    A caregiver has been arrested on suspicion of fraud, among additional charges.

    Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say 51-year-old Christine Garthright was taken into custody Wednesday at the Dewey home of an 89-year-old male victim.

    The victim’s daughter notified authorities that Garthright was exploiting her dad for money over a four-year period.

    She claimed that between June 2018 and May 2020, Garthright wrote 34 unauthorized checks totaling more than $11,000.

    Furthermore, Garthright was also accused of using the victim’s ATM card without permission to withdraw cash and stole several thousands of dollars from his safe.

    Garthright, who is a native of the Philippines, is being held on a $50,000 bond at the Camp Verde jail and faces charges of theft, computer tampering, forgery, and trespassing.
