Sheriff’s deputies Monday arrested a woman with residences in both Sonoma and Los Gatos on charges of financial elder abuse.
According to a release from Sgt. Mike Raasch, with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Property Crimes Unit, Christina Marie Pruitt, 57, had been wanted by the Daly City Police Department for about a year.
Monday, a neighbor in the 100 block of La Mancha Way, reported seeing Pruitt at the condo and called the Sheriff’s Office.
When deputies arrived at Pruitt’s condo at around 6:30 p.m., they found her car in the driveway. They went to Pruitt’s condo and heard the TV on. Deputies tried to make contact, but she refused to open the door. Pruitt ended up turning off the TV and refused to answer the door. Detectives had to obtain another arrest warrant for Pruitt, because the arrest warrant did not have Pruitt’s condominium address listed on the warrant.
Once the arrest warrant was issued, deputies entered Pruitt’s unlocked residence and found her hiding in her bedroom.
