NASHUA — On January 25, authorities received a report from the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services (BEAS) about Christine Sullivan, 60, a resident of Nashua.
The BEAS letter said that Sullivan took over $50,000 from an elderly family member.
The Uniform Field Operations Bureau of the Nashua Police Department went to Sullivan’s home to investigate.
Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division of the Nashua Police Department found that Sullivan took money from the family member’s bank account in December 2022, without benefiting the family member.
The Nashua Police Department detectives asked for an arrest warrant for Sullivan, charging her with Financial Exploitation of an Elderly Adult, which is a Class B Felony.
Sullivan was arrested on March 9, by the Uniform Field Operations Bureau of the Nashua Police Department.
The charges were later changed to a Class A Felony based on the amount taken, which was over $1,500.
A Class A Felony is punishable by up to 15 years in state prison, besides fines.
Sullivan was released from custody on Personal Recognizance and will appear in the Hillsborough County Superior Court – South on April 6, 2023, at 1:00 PM.
