PERRIS – A Perris couple was arrested on Wednesday after imprisoning, burglarizing and financially abusing an elderly couple Riverside County Sheriff’s officials said. In August of 2015, an 84-year-old woman was faced with the heart-wrenching task of placing her husband, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease in a place that can care for him.
She researched several locations and found 52-year old Annazette Rosia Shillings and 53-year old Wayne Golden from Perris. She placed her husband under their care in their Perris home for the agreed upon rent and fees associated with his care.
Several months later, in April 2016 Shillings went to the woman’s Sun City home to convince her to go live with her in Perris. Shillings grabbed her house keys, her car keys, and her checkbook then drove her to the home. During this time the woman was not allowed to leave the home.
Around 2 weeks later, the female victim was able to communicate with an Adult Protective Services social worker by phone. The social worker went to the home to picked up the elderly woman and drove her to her Sun City home. When they arrived they noticed the home was burglarized and the couple attempted to access her and her husband’s bank accounts. They also learned that Shillings created bogus documents to prove she was the caretaker to both elderly victims. Those documents were given to the Social Security Administration in an attempt to collect the couple’s social security benefits and the husband’s veterans’ benefits.
On Wednesday Perris station investigators served a search warrant on the residence in the 1200 block of Friedman Street, the home shared by the suspects. Evidence collected verified the information received in the complaint and nearly all of the stolen property was recovered during the search.
Both Shillings and Golden were placed under arrested and booked into jail for False Imprisonment, Financial Elder Abuse, Burglary, Possession of Stolen Property and ID Theft.
Anyone that has any information pertinent to the investigation is asked to contact Lance Colmer at the Perris Police Department by calling (951) 210-1000, or by email PerrisStation@RiversideSheriff.org.
