A Sidney woman faces a third-degree grand larceny charge for allegedly stealing $13,000 from an elderly couple in her care.

Jennifer L. Fogliano, 30, was arrested Friday in connection with the theft, state police at Sidney said.

Fogliano began working for a couple in Sidney as a home health care aid about two months ago and took the money over the span of those two months, troopers said.

She was released on her own recognizance and on Monday waived her right to a felony hearing, troopers said. The case will now be presented to a Delaware County grand jury, troopers said.
