Suspect accused of scamming elderly woman pleads guilty

ALBANY -- The Cohoes woman accused of scamming a woman suffering from dementia out of her home pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

Lauran Parker, 74, pleaded guilty to a 4th degree conspiracy charge. She, along with Delia Price, 68, and Michael O'Brien, 43, were arrested after a 2-month investigation.

Authorities say the city treasurer alerted detectives to possible irregularities involving a property owned by an elderly Cohoes resident. “They received a call from someone pretending to be a family member of the victim's during the course of the conversation he realized he knew the victim and that party doesn't have any children or grandchildren,” said Det. Jason Johnston with the Cohoes Police Department.

Johnston said the three suspects conspired to take advantage of the woman and trick her into signing over her longtime family home to Price and Parker. According to authorities, the pair worked as aides to the victim and used that relationship to gain her trust.
