Those transactions caused the victim to look over other bank statements where she discovered other withdrawals that were made and an additional student loan payment. The suspects were determined to be 26-year-old San Bernardino residents, Julie Aguilar ,and Mercede Pettegrew . Authorities determined that Aguilar, a caretaker for the victim, used the victim’s banking information to remove over $14000 from her accounts.
Both suspects were interviewed and subsequently booked into the West Valley Detention Center for identity theft and elder abuse Thursday morning. They were released on $50,000 bail each on Thursday night according to jail records.
