Woman wanted for identity theft, fraud after pretending to be a Bay Area nanny, police say

A woman wanted for “several felonies” is being sought after by police after she allegedly assumed another person’s identity and interviewed for a shared nanny position in San Francisco, authorities said.

Police identified Darlene Mariana Monticalvo, 60, as the woman whom two families say was being considered for a nanny job, according to Emeryville police.

Those families apparently looked into Monticalvo’s supposed background and got in contact with an Emeryville resident, police said, when it was discovered that Monticalvo was assuming that resident’s identity.

Working with the families, police say they identified Monticalvo using surveillance camera footage from one of the families that interviewed the supposed nanny.

Police say Monticalvo is known for running nanny schemes in the past and “tends to target young, affluent families,” according to a press release from the Emeryville Police Department. She is also wanted by the Oakland Police Department for various felonies, including injury to a child.
