Woman accused of thefts at dental offices arrested

A 48-year-old woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars from patients at the dental offices where she worked has been arrested, authorities said yesterday.

Emily Marie Forbes was taken into custody Tuesday at Scripps Ranch Family Dentistry on Scripps Trail, said El Cajon police Lt. Tim Henton. She is accused of bilking 18 people out of $72,000 at five dental offices in El Cajon, Chula Vista and San Diego.

Police said Forbes stole checks from patients, used their personal information to open credit card accounts and used the office’s credit card terminals to fraudulently refund money to checking accounts she could access, Henton said.
