Elderly Slidell Woman Allegedly Bilked Out of $14,000

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s detectives concluded a nearly two-year-long elderly exploitation case with the arrest Wednesday (May 23, 2018) of Bernardita Voss (51) of Chalmette. Voss is accused of exploiting an 85-year-old Slidell resident.
The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office was originally contacted by the victim’s son in late 2016 after he suspected his mother’s sitter was making unauthorized transactions from the elderly woman’s personal bank account. Detectives began the time consuming process of obtaining and sifting through piles of financial records and hours of surveillance video from multiple merchant locations to establish the probable cause necessary to positively identify Voss as the sole individual responsible for this crime.
Thursday (May 24, 2018), Voss reportedly confessed to committing theft of more than $14,000 between March 2016 to December 2016.
