FAIRFIELD — A 34-year-old transient was arrested in Solano County on a warrant obtained by a police department in San Mateo County for alleged financial abuse of a 71-year-old woman involving the withdrawal of $34,000 from her bank account.

The suspect, Samuel Bustos, moved last August with his girlfriend into the victim’s Belmont residence as caretakers. In early March, the 71-year-old woman reported to police that funds were missing from her bank.

Detectives suspect that Bustos withdrew $34,000 between October 2013 and February, Belmont police said.

The Solano County Sheriff’s Office arrested Bustos on Saturday based on the warrant on suspicion of grand theft, identity theft and elder abuse.

Bustos is in the San Mateo County jail. No charges have been filed against his girlfriend, police said.

    Enlightening, thought-provoking, eye-opening commentary. Unnecessary, embarassing meltdowns should be reserved for the pros - not local news. Please, dont hesitate to contribute with a little less vehemence/hate and the world just might not suck so bad. Sorry for whatever happened to you. It's not the worst thing in the world....leave earlier ...just kidding!
