A Sebastopol woman was arrested on suspicion of stealing a quarter million dollars from a Sonoma County senior living community after a new accountant was brought on board and noticed the numbers didn’t add up, officials said Wednesday. The suspect, 59-year-old Frances Farias, was found to have created ten fake employee payroll accounts and used them to funnel money away from the Oakmont Senior Living community in Windsor while she worked there as a payroll clerk, said Sgt. Spencer Crum, a spokesman for the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. Farias left the nursing home in May 2016, and a new payroll clerk hired to replace her noticed irregularities in the accounting that pointed to Farias’s alleged fraud, which the Sheriff’s Office began investigating in January 2017, according to Crum. Farias, who is currently under investigation for several other schemes that may lead to more criminal charges, is being held in the Sonoma County Jail on four felony counts of identity theft and one felony count of grand theft, according to county records.
