A woman who served as a caretaker from an elderly Westport woman is accused of stealing silver from her client and has been arrested.
Police have charged 50-year-old Maribeth Nixon, of Westport, with third-degree larceny.
An officer who was reviewing recent Westport pawn and precious metals transactions on Feb. 26 saw that Nixon sold several silver items that were engraved with someone else’s initials, according to police.
Police said the department knew Nixon was a caretaker for a local elderly woman and the woman’s initials matched those on the silver.
Nixon turned herself in to police on Wednesday and has been charged with third-degree larceny and she was held on $25,000 court set bond.
