A Waterbury woman and her ex-boyfriend are accused of stealing from a Newtown resident the woman was hired to provide care for.
Police started investigating on Nov. 2, when an elderly woman’s credit card was reported stolen and obtained warrants for 29-year-old Earlisha Watson, of Waterbury, and her ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old Michael Tallman, also of Waterbury.
Tallman is accused of collaborating with Watson in the theft and illegal withdrawal of money from the credit card, police said.
Watson turned herself in to police on Jan. 14. Police could not find Tallman for several months, but located him in New Haven on Thursday.
Watson has been charged with sixth-degree conspiracy to commit larceny and credit card theft by transfer.
Tallman has been charged with sixth-degree larceny, illegal use of a credit card and identity theft. He was released on $15,000 bond and is due in court on Sept. 8.
