Three Arrested in Cohoes Scam

Three people are arrested for allegedly scamming an elderly woman out of the deed to her home. 

Cohoes Police say Delia Price, Lauran Parker, and Michael O'Brien all conspired to trick the woman into signing paperwork transferring ownership of her longtime home over to them. 

Price and Parker worked as aides to the woman.  Police say they took the 80-year-old to the bank to fill out the paperwork.  

The two women could face 5 to 15 years in prison on grand larceny and conspiracy charges.  

O'Brien faces a conspiracy charge for falsely posing as the victim's grandson.
