BERKELEY – A woman who worked for a home care agency—assisting home bound individuals—remains in custody for $375,000 bail following her latest in a long record of arrests.

The home care aide is suspected of breaking into three women’s gym lockers, and using one of the victim’s credit cards to make $20,000 in fraudulent purchases at a CVS Pharmacy.

The suspect used guest passes to enter City Sports Club at 3100 San Pablo Avenue on October 16; and Equinox gym at 2600 Shattuck Avenue on November 24.

More crimes followed the gym locker burglaries. Keys stolen from lockers at Equinox were used to enter the victim’s cars and steal additional items. Later a credit card reported stolen from one of the lockers was used to make purchases at a CVS Pharmacy,
Investigators identified a suspect from videos recorded by surveillance cameras at the Equinox check-in desk and the CVS store.

Berkeley detectives followed up with a search warrant and located stolen property at the home of 32-year-old Richmond resident Andrania M. Yancy, her car and a storage locker.

Yancy was arrested on December 8 for three counts of burglary, two counts of identity theft, two counts of grand theft, and possession of stolen property. She’s also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, forgery, and trespassing.

Her rap sheet includes several prior arrests involving thefts, forgeries, burglaries, identity theft, and other offenses.

Yancy is scheduled to appear on December 19 for a pretrial hearing at Rene C. Davidson Alameda County Courthouse. Meanwhile, she’s limited to exercising at Santa Rita Jail.
