CNA Arrested for Stealing Resident Credit Cards

Published on December 18th, 2019

Karen Paredes-Luquin is a nursing assistant at Auburn Oaks Care Center nursing home facing multiple charges of felony fraud involving elders she cared for, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.  Paredes-Luquin was caught on surveillance video Nov. 22 using stolen credit cards belonging to two residents.

Authorities received reports of the fraud from the nursing home and found video at the locations the credit cards were used. One of the videos shows Paredes-Luquin wearing nursing scrubs and a surgical mask while making the purchases, which made the cashier serving her suspicious, according to officials. The cashier followed Paredes-Luquin and wrote down her vehicle information. The cashier was able to provide that information to investigators, who then used it to identify Paredes-Luquin.

Detectives arrested Paredes-Luquin when she arrived at work and charged her with multiple counts of felony fraud. She has since posted $100,000 bail and was released from custody.
