VOLUSIA COUNTY, FL – A 21-year-old Deltona woman has been arrested on charges she took almost $200,000 from her grandfather since late 2019. According to authorities, Jena Quiles was arrested Thursday night on a charge of exploitation of the elderly after a Sheriff’s Office investigation revealed she withdrew $190,291 from the 86-year-old victim’s bank account in almost 275 transactions since December 2019.

The investigation started in December 2021 after the victim noticed money missing from his account. Quiles’ name or phone number was seen on multiple withdrawals. While the victim had provided Quiles with money for her education, vehicle and insurance, he told the investigating deputy he never gave her permission to withdraw money behind his back.

Deputies subpoenaed bank records, confirmed the withdrawals and arrested Quiles at her home late Thursday. She apologized and was remorseful for her actions.

The state of Florida has resources available for seniors who are victims of exploitation and other crimes. To report suspected exploitation, abuse or neglect, you can call the Florida Abuse Hotline 24/7 at 1-800-96-ABUSE, and press 2.
