PD: Texas woman flees to Mexico after forging father’s signature to get loan and car

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — A woman has been arrested on suspicion of forging her father’s signature to get a cash loan and exploiting him to co-sign a car loan, police said.

Sandra Rebecca Garcia, 46, was arrested by Brownsville police on Monday on charges of child/elderly/disabled exploitation and credit/debit card abuse, officials said.

“When her family confronted her and advised her that she had no legal authority to take the money or forge the victim’s signature, Garcia took the car and fled to Mexico,” police said. .

Garcia, who was caring for her 76-year-old father, was accused of forging his father’s signature to obtain cash loans and credit cards, police said. Garcia also withdrew money from his father’s bank account and deposited it in another account, police said.

Authorities also allege that she exploited her father into co-signing the car on the pretext that she needed the car to take him to the hospital.

On Monday, Customs and Border Protection acted on Garcia’s arrest warrant. Garcia was taken to the Brownsville City Jail where he was arraigned on Tuesday, police said.

Her bonds total $20,000.
