A 34-year-old man identified as Luke Quatrini, has been accused of using his grandfather’s life savings to pay for his girlfriend’s breast enlargement surgery.
According to a report by The Sun, Quatrini used granddad Clifford Bartlett’s bank card without his permission and withdrew a sum of £3,000, rendering him unable to pay for home utilities. The granddad reportedly died not long after the incident.
The case was heard by a jury at the Newport Crown Court, Wales. A prosecutor, Emma Harries explained to the court that the theft took place over a 10-month period staying at the residence of the deceased in the year 2012.
Quatrini had reportedly lost his apartment to fire but his granddad helped him with a place to stay. Unfortunately, the retired dock worker was made to lose a chunk of his money after rendering assistance to the accused.
“He had not given anyone permission to use his card,” Harries mentioned while addressing the jury.
