Pierce County Prosecutor news

Yesterday the Pierce County Prosecutor’s office arraigned Russell Glen Grover, 33, and Adrienne L. Van Arsdale, 33, on charges related to multiple thefts from a senior community called The Lakes.

“Cases like this are why we started our Elder Abuse Unit,” said Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. “We are committed to protecting our elders, and we seek long sentences for those who prey upon them.”

Grover is charged with Residential Burglary and four counts of trafficking stolen property in the first degree. Van Arsdale is charged with one count of Trafficking Stolen Property in the First Degree.

Grover was formerly employed as a maintenance worker at The Lakes. During that time, he and Van Arsdale were in a relationship. Beginning in April, law enforcement were called to The Lakes on multiple occasions by multiple different homeowners in the community, all reporting that items were missing from their homes.

Investigations online found that Grover had sold a Dewalt impact hammer owned by The Lakes and given to residents for their use, as well as two TVs matching those owned by The Lakes and given to their residents to use. Investigators searched pawn shops and located jewelry that had been pawned that residents of The Lakes were able to identify as their property. That jewelry included a wedding ring that had recently been purchased by one of the residents for his wife.

In total, over the course of 13 months, Grover sold approximately $33,000 worth of jewelry.

Grover and Van Arsdale were charged on August 3, 2016, and bench warrants were issued for their arrest. They turned themselves in on September 14.

Bail for Grover was set in the amount of $75,000. Electronic home monitoring under the supervision of Pretrial Services was ordered for Van Arsdale.

Charges are only allegations and a person is presumed innocent unless he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
