Couple arrested on elder abuse, forgery charges in Kings Co.
A man and a woman were booked into Kings County Jail on charges of elder abuse and identity theft after Corcoran police reported that they stole more than $22,000 from a senior woman in the city.
The couple was identified as Amelia Nai, 33, and her husband, Jack Vinyard, 32.
Officers met with the woman in October 2016, when she said that she suspected that Nai was taking her money and checks, prompting an investigation that resulted in the serving of a search warrant at Nai’s home in Visalia. That resulted in the discovery of checks belonging to the victim, as well as evidence that checks had been cashed, according to a police spokesman.
The Kings County District Attorney issued arrest warrants for the couple, who were taken into custody by police in Henderson, Nevada, on Feb. 8. They were returned to Kings County.
Amelia Nai and Jack Vinyard were arrested in Nevada and returned to Kings County to face elder abuse and forgery charges.
