Date & Time: September 22nd, 2021,

Narrative: In mid-May of 2021, deputies from the Moorpark Patrol Station responded to a residence in the 4300 block of Persimmon Street for a family related disturbance. After a brief investigation, deputies arrested Amanda Quaglino, 26 years old, for assaulting a family member. During a search of Quaglino’s person, deputies located a bank debit card in someone else’s name. Quaglino was booked at the Ventura County Jail for the assault charge and the case involving the debit card was assumed by the Moorpark Investigations Bureau.
Over the next several weeks, detectives and investigators determined that the bank debit card was actually connected to a State of California Employment Development Department (EDD) account in someone else’s name. Detectives continued their investigation and learned that Quaglino had fraudulently applied for and received approximately $23,000.00 in EDD benefits by stealing the identity of another resident of Ventura County. Detectives also learned that Quaglino applied for and received approximately $50,000.00 in EDD benefits in her own name, which she was not entitled to, by providing false information on her EDD application. Additionally, during the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Quaglino’s mother Tracy Davis, 56 years old of Moorpark, assisted another family member in receiving approximately $23,000.00 in EDD benefits that they were not entitled to, as the family member lived out of state and had not lived in California in over forty years.
On the morning of September 22nd, detectives contacted Quaglino as she was leaving the Ventura County Court House and arrested her on Identity Theft, Grand Theft, and False Representation on an Insurance Claim charges. Later that afternoon, detectives contacted Davis in Westlake Village and arrested her on Conspiracy to Commit Grand Theft Charges. Both Davis and Quaglino were booked at the Ventura County Jail. Each of their respective bail was at $100,000.00 and both are awaiting trial.
