Home Health Care Aide Charged With Grand Larceny

The Brooklyn man stole money from several victims when he was employed as an home aide in East Rockaway, police said.

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.
