Deputies: Women solicited prostitution to exploit elderly man

Heather Zachman

An 86-year-old West Palm Beach man lost almost everything in his bank account to two 24-year-old women who offered themselves as prostitutes to get access to his home and money, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies say.

The pair — Heather M. Zachman, of Loxahatchee Groves, and Caroline P. Robinson, of Wellington — are now facing exploitation of the elderly charges. They’ve been locked up in the Palm Beach County Jail since being arrested Saturday, and are being held on $8,000 bond.

The elderly man’s son called and asked deputies to check on his father, according to arrest reports, and on Friday, a deputy stopped by the house on Mango Drive.

During his investigation, the deputy discovered Zachman and Robinson had taken the man’s card and withdrawn “large amounts of money” multiple times, nearly “depleting the entire account.” The exact amount of money taken was not noted in the reports, but the two are charged with exploitation for less than $20,000.

The man told the deputy the pair threatened him repeatedly, telling him not to call law enforcement, the reports state. They hit him, intimidated him and kept him in fear for his safety, he said.

They also pawned several of his items without permission — including a widescreen TV, according to the report.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement records show Zachman and Robinson have each been arrested multiple times.
