South Windsor Police: Caregiver Forged $645 of Checks

Victoria Booker, 46, of Hartford faces several charges, according to police.

A Hartford woman is facing several charges for allegedly forging and cashing several checks  from the Glastonbury woman for whom she was providing care.

South Windsor Police on Thursday arrested Victoria Booker, 46, of 1501 Main Street, Hartford, for stealing a woman’s checks and cashing $645 worth of them in November 2012, according to Sgt. Scott Custer.

Booker, who was employed as the victim’s caregiver, was charged with larceny in the second degree, forgery in the second degree and identity theft in the third degree.

Custer said that Booker told police that she “needed money,” though no other motive was provided. The case was referred to South Windsor from the Glastonbury police department, Custer said.

Booker was held on $35,000 surety bond and was scheduled to be presented at Manchester Superior Court later this morning.

Just people looking for an easy way to get cheep labor. All they had to do is look her record up. Booker has been in trouble with the law before.

You make youself a target it will happen all the time. Just do a background check on people before they do that kind of work for you. This is not the first time Booker has been in trouble with law. Zebra's don't shed their strips
