A couple from Best was arrested Tuesday for deceiving an 88-year-old woman from Son en Breugel.
The two had been taking money, 100,000 Euros in total, from the woman since 2009. The police discovered that several thousands of Euros had been withdrawn from her bank account every month.According to the police, the man did some small projects on the woman’s house in 2008, after which the woman and the couple stayed in touch.Earlier this year, the woman’s family reported to the police because large amounts of money were disappearing from her account. The couple is being held in custody. The police hope to recover part of the money.
