The victim realized what had happened on Feb. 4 when he visited the bank, Scaduto said. Accounts were frozen on Feb. 6 and Borges was arrested at Chase, 7180 W. Grand Ave., on Tuesday.

Borges, of the 2800 block of North Mobile Avenue in Belmont Cragin, was charged with identity theft and financial exploitation of the elderly.

  • The cinder-stilt building is the the regional or national office for a particular religion, and while it may be the same brand as Arias church, it is run by someone else.

    Look, maybe they know more than we do and being up on stilts prepares them for the next flood!

  • everyblockhp Looking to make hp a better place for everyone !

    You may be right on that one !
    But that pastor Arias should be supporting the elderly gentleman who went looking for help and instead had $70,000 stolen from his account by the pastors chaplain.
    very sad .

  • I lived on the first floor of that building at Wrightwood/Lavernge back in 1981. The heat would kick on and you'd hear clanging of the pipes the whole time the furnace was on.

  • Ronald, sounds like it was a steam boiler.  Did you have radiators?  The old 2- flat I grew up in in Old Irving was the same way.  The boiler would kick on and it sounded like someone was banging on the pipes with a hammer.  The landlord said there was no way to fix it (?) so we just got used to it.  I can't believe we used to be able to sleep through that banging!
