Manicurist Forged Checks Stolen From 91-Year-Old Ladue Woman, Police Said

The accused woman visited the elderly woman's home frequently to give manicures and nail treatments, police said.

A manicurist stole checks and forged them, stealing $6,090 from a 91-year-old Ladue woman, police said.

Linh Huyen Hansen, 41, of the 4900 block of Parker Avenue in St. Louis, was charged Tuesday with eight counts of forgery.

Ladue Police said the Hansen went frequently to the woman’s house to give her manicures and nail treatments. The woman discovered missing checks and found they had been made payable to Hansen and were cashed at locations in St. Louis County and the city.

Eight checks were cashed between April 16 and June 26. The defendant was videotaped cashing the checks, police said.

The defendant told police she filled out the checks in amounts larger than was authorized by the victim.

Bail was set at $20,000.

Maybe the head line should be; "Manicurist Nailed"

unfortunately, I was "taken" by the same manicurest a year and a half ago......when I bailed her son out of jail, to the tune of $3000.00. live and learn....when you make the decision to "loan" money, assume you won't be paid back, and if you are reimbursed, major thumbs up for trust, truth, honesty and integrity of the human being. God Bless her and her children :-/

I know her,I used to work with her and I don't find this too shocking. She'd go around acting all nice and sweet and then would steal your husbands. No joke.

Shut the hell up everyone. Quit gossiping and talking crap on someone you don't know! Her children are very hurt over this situation and none of you are making it any better! Keep your comments to yourself! If it did or didn't happen that's between her and the 91 year old. No need for everyone's stupid input!!!!

How embarrassing. It's a shame the actions she ultimately makes affects her children, the people who look up to her for guidance. May God bless her loved ones and not have the devil corrupt their innocent lives as it did to this disgrace. Although I may not know both sides of the story, I know she deserves a slap in the face for all she has done in her life. It's sad to see a woman without worth. It must feel miserable to know no one has any respect for her. I don't know how she can still go around town acting like she's so precious and all the while stealing money. Like I said, a disgrace. Shame on you. May God bless your ugly soul.
