Tucson Man Accused of Taking Money From Vulnerable Adults

Hector Andres Aleman

A Tucson man, Hector Andres Aleman, has been indicted by a state Grand Jury for 20 criminal charges including Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices, Forgery, Computer Tampering, and Taking the Identity of Another.

According to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, the charges stem from Aleman allegedly using a position of trust to take advantage of three vulnerable adults by gaining access to the victims’ funds and transferring the money to himself.

The indictment alleges that from March through November 2018, Aleman applied for loans in the name of two victims without their authorization or knowledge and kept the cash for himself. Additionally, Aleman is accused of falsifying probate documents for a recently deceased victim so Aleman could direct the estate’s assets to himself.
