A 24-year-old Gulf Breeze woman is facing felony charges after police said she stole $4,600 from an elderly person while working at The Blake, an assisted living facility in Gulf Breeze.
Andi Michelle Shaw was arrested Aug. 12 on 11 counts of writing bad checks; 11 counts of forgery; one count of exploitation of the elderly; and one count larceny.
Deputies responded to The Blake on July 30 after a friend of the victim reported several “unusual transactions” on the victim’s checking account statement. She told police checks were made out to Shaw, which the victim never authorized.
According to the report, Shaw told the friend that the victim wanted her to have the money and that she used it to pay bills. The victim said she had no knowledge that Shaw used her checks.
Shaw was released on $14,000 bond.
