A carer who stole £24,000 from an elderly woman has been jailed for two years after pleading guilty to two counts of fraud by abuse of position at Guildford Crown Court on 5th May.
Dawn Butler, 55, a care manager from Mitcham Road, Old Dean, Camberley, was arrested in 2013 on suspicion of fraud. Butler was a carer for a private care firm in Farnborough who used her position to steal money from an 81-year-old vulnerable woman who had no immediate family.
Butler began to take money from the victim's account in 2012, before she moved the victim out of her flat in November 2013 and into her own home in Camberley. The matter was brought to the attention of Surrey Police after the victim's friends came forward to report concerns for her welfare, as they were being denied contact with her by Butler.
A joint Surrey Heath Social Services and Surrey Police investigation led to the victim being removed from Butler's home whilst the financial investigation took place.
