    A woman who was training to be an aide at an assisted living facility in South Windsor is accused of stealing more than $10,000 from one of the residents.

    Jessica Solomon, 37, of East Hartford was arrested on a warrant at Manchester Superior Court on Thursday.  

    Police started investigating in May because she was suspected of stealing a resident’s wallet and checkbook from an assisted living facility on Buckland Road. 

    As police investigated, officers learned that more than $10,000 in forged checks had been cashed against the victim’s account. 

    During an interview with police, Solomon admitted she was involved and told detectives that she was desperate, almost homeless and that the money was for rent and repairs, police said.

    Solomon, who was briefly employed at the assisted living facility, cooperated with the investigators and was charged with five counts of identity theft in the first degree, five counts of forgery in the second degree, larceny in the third degree, larceny in the fourth degree, and several counts of larceny in the fifth degree and larceny in the sixth degree. 

    She was held at court on a surety bond and was arraigned on Thursday morning.

    It is not clear if she has an attorney. Solomon is due in court on Oct. 8.
