Caregiver busted after meth use in client's residence.

Two Concord residents were arrested over the weekend after police found them allegedly under the influence of methamphetamine in the home of a 97-year-old Rossmoor resident who, investigators say, had no idea they were in his home or that they were doing drugs there.

Walnut Creek police said 51-year-old Alice Wolfgramm and 47-year-old Tipiloma Hausia, both of Concord, were found Sunday in the presence of a 12-year-old girl and the 97-year-old man after Hausia called police to report that Wolfgramm was attempting to poison him inside a residence in the 5000 block of Terra Granada Drive. Officers said the pair were allegedly smoking methamphetamine in the bathroom of the man’s home. Wolfgramm had reportedly been hired to care for the resident five months earlier.

Officers allegedly found the pair under the influence of methamphetamine and in the presence of the 12-year-old girl, believed to be Wolfgramm’s daughter. The unidentified Rossmoor resident was not aware Hausia or the girl were in his home and did not know Wolfgramm and Hausia were smoking methamphetamine in his bathroom.

The man’s relatives in Rio Vista were called and informed of the situation, police said. Wolfgramm was arrested for use of and being under the influence of a controlled substance, cruelty to a child by inflicting injury and elder or dependent adult abuse. Hausia was arrested on drug and battery charges. The case has been forwarded to the Contra Costa District Attorney’s office for prosecution.
