Sheriff: Man stole $20,000 from 88-year-old Sarasota woman

Posted: Updated:
SARASOTA, FL (WFLA) - The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man who stole more than $20,000 from an 88-year-old woman he lived with.

Detectives say Anthony Rigali of Englewood moved in with the victim and her son last July. Between August and November 2013, the sheriff's office found the victim signed 14 checks that she thought Rigali was using to pay bills.

However, Rigali allegedly used the money for himself, purchasing a truck, a trip to Ohio and to pay back child support. Detectives also found he used the woman's ATM card to withdraw $600 in cash.

He turned himself into detectives Tuesday and is being held on $25,000 bond.
