SOUTH PARIS — A Maine woman who formerly worked as a caretaker has been charged with theft following the theft of an undetermined amount of money from a client’s savings account.

Police say Sheila Graves, of Stow, was arrested at her home and 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 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.
