  • Care Aide in Surrey charged with fraud, steals from 96 year old man

Surrey RCMP need the public's help in providing further information regarding fraud with a senior. 

Richmond RCMP received a report that a wallet was stolen from a 96-year old man’s residence in Richmond. Credit and debit cards from the wallet were being fraudulently used in Surrey and Delta.

Surrey RCMP Financial Crime Unit took conduct of the investigation and identified a suspect.

The suspect, a care aide, had been hired to assist with caring for the elderly man. It is alleged the suspect stole the wallet and fraudulently used debit and credit cards.

Via release, Mounties say last Friday, an arrest warrant was issued for 30-year-old, Ana Marie Lat Chamdal of Surrey. Ana Marie Lat Chamdal has been charged with fraud over $5000, possession/use of a stolen credit card, two counts of using a forged document, identity theft, personation with intent to gain advantage and breach of undertaking.

On July 27, 2022, Ana Marie Lat Chamdal was arrested and brought before Judge who released her on court imposed conditions. Some of the imposed conditions include:

  • Reporting to a bail supervisor;
  • Not to possess any identification documents, including credit cards, debit cards, checks, negotiable instruments, driver’s licenses, birth certificates, social insurance cards, mail, invoices or bills other than ones in your name;
  • Not to engage in any employment that requires you to enter another person’s private residence; and
  • Not to engage in any employment that requires you to work at a care aid facility or any facility or building that operates or cares for senior adults.

It is disheartening to see an elderly person taken advantage of, especially by a person entrusted with providing care for them, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn. This also serves as a reminder that is it important to monitor elderly family member’s finances to ensure that they are not being exploited.

 Investigators believe that she worked as a care aide in Richmond, Delta, White Rock and Surrey. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP Financial Crime Unit at 604-599-0502.
