Police: Home health aide stealing from elderly clients

Kris Marsan of 33 Campfield Drive, Fairfield, was arrested on June 15 for third-larceny after she allegedly stole more than $5,000 while working as a home health aide for the elderly.

The incident happened between Sept. 10 and 15 of 2014, according to police. Her court date is June 30.

Police said several pieces of jewelry were taken from the dresser drawers of the victim, who hired Marsan to care for her mother at their home on Warde Terrace in Fairfield.

According to law enforcement officials, Marsan is no stranger to police as she has been suspected of numerous other thefts involving senior citizens throughout Fairfield County, who have been victims to Marsan’s alleged predatory thefts.

A similar theft took place with another victim in Fairfield in January 2015, police said. The son of the victim contacted the Fairfield Police Department to report the theft of cash and jewelry from his 87-year-old mother, Eleanor Beliveau’s residence, on Morehouse Drive.

Police reviewed video

Police said Beliveau had a video of the suspect, Kris Marsan, a home health aide hired to assist with his mother’s care, stealing cash from her bedroom dresser drawer. Beliveau emailed a copy of the footage for the Fairfield Police Department’s review. Beliveau did not inform Marsan about the recording.

The home health aide, who was not registered with the state, stole money and jewelry totaling more than $6,500, according to police.

Other suspected cases

Marsan also is suspected of a theft in Monroe where she was employed to care for an elderly woman. In that case, according to Monroe police detectives, she house sat for and elderly woman while she was recovering at Lord Chamberlain in Stratford.

After the victim returned home, she noticed that all of her jewelry was gone.

Norwalk police have also reported that Marsan was employed by an elderly woman in which Marsan is alleged to have stolen more than $60,000 in jewelry from the home.

That victim’s daughter then called the Fairfield Police Department to report that she had referred Marsan to another family in Westport, in which Marsan allegedly stole a checkbook and wrote herself fraudulent checks totaling $30,000.

The Norwalk and Westport cases remain under investigation, according to police.

This arrested predator poses a real threat to elderly citizens everywhere and the public should be aware, Fairfield police officials said.
