Ventura County Woman Accused Of Stealing Nearly $400,000 From Family Trust

Posted on Friday, November 22, 2013 12:42am

A Ventura County woman is accused of stealing nearly $400,000 from a family trust.

Simi Valley Police say Tracie Vu was a trustee for a trust fund for a relative who had received a large settlement from a serious traffic accident a decade ago.

Detectives say the 47 year old woman disappeared in July of 2012, and family members then discovered nearly $400,000 was missing from the account.

She was arrested this week, when she showed up at a probate court in Oxnard, apparently under the impression she was going to receive a financial settlement from the trust fund.

Vu was arrested for embezzlement.

Detectives say she had spent the missing money.
