Keojhi T. Branch, 26, of Catskill, was arrested and charged with third-degree and fourth-degree grand larceny and first-degree identity theft, felonies, officials said.

Branch was arrested following a lengthy investigation where officials determined he stole a total of $4,395 from a client of the care facility where he worked in Milton, officials said.

He did so by using the client’s debit card to make withdrawals and purchases for his own benefit, officials said. He also used the client’s online retail account to benefit himself, officials said.

Branch was arraigned and released to return to court later.
