TRUCKEE, Calif. — A 48-year-old Truckee man was arrested this week on multiple felony charges related to financial elder abuse, according to the Truckee Police Department.
According to a Thursday TPD press release, Richard Copeland had been stealing money and other items from his family members for several months.
After being tipped by family members, police “acted quickly to limit losses,” and arrested Copeland Wednesday for multiple counts of check fraud, forgery, theft, burglary and financial-related elder abuse.
Copeland was booked into Nevada County Jail on Wednesday; his bail was set at $25,000.
