SOUTH PARIS, Maine — A Stow woman who formerly worked as a caretaker has been accused of stealing from a client’s savings account.

Police say Sheila Graves is charged with unauthorized taking of less than $1,000. Graves, who formerly worked for Northern Human Services, was arrested by members of the Conway (N.H.) Police Department and Oxford County sheriff’s deputies after a report that the money was missing from the victim’s account between October 2009 and last March.

The charge is a misdemeanor, but it carries an enhanced penalty because the victim is 65 or older or has a disability.

WMTW reports that Graves is awaiting extradition to New Hampshire.
