BCSO investigating embezzlement and abuse of an elderly Camp Fire survivor
The Butte County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) announced on Friday they have obtained an arrest warrant for Brenda Rose Asbury, 29 of Oroville, for elder abuse, embezzlement and grand theft.
According to BSCO, the arrest warrant is the culmination of an investigation that began July 30 of this year.
BCSO says they learned Asbury embezzled $63,100 from a 75-year-old Camp Fire survivor as part of an insurance settlement the 75-year-old obtained after losing a home in the Camp Fire.
Investigators are asking anyone with information on Asbury's whereabouts to contact Detective Will Brewton at (530) 538-7671.
