San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested a Redwood City woman Saturday for grand theft and forgery.
Sandy Delgado, 28, was arrested on 95 counts of grand theft and forgery. She came under suspicion on Jan. 18 after members of a family in the North Fair Oaks area for whom she had worked for years reported several incidents of forgery and grand theft occurring over the past 18 months, Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said.
A thorough investigation ensued over the past two weeks resulting in the discovery of 66 additional counts of forgery and grand theft occurring in the past 4 years, according to a San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office report.
The suspect, who had been in the family’s employ for years, is currently in custody in San Mateo County Jail on $950,000 bail.
