Police have arrested an East Rockaway home health care aide after he allegedly stole money from several victims he worked for.
Police said that Raymond Caliste, 50, of 982 E 81st Street, Brooklyn, pried open a locked safe and took money from an 80-year-old female victim on July 20, when he was employed as an aide.
On Nov. 22, the same victim called her 76-year-old close friend who also hired Caliste and informed her of the theft, telling her that she should check her belongs. The 76-year-old victim then realized that her silver flatware was missing.
Caliste surrendered himself to police and was placed under arrest on Thursday, and the silver flatware was recovered at a local jeweler. Caliste was charged with three counts of grand larceny 3rd degree and will be arraigned on Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
