Boutin is facing multiple charges including larceny and 24 counts of credit card fraud, which police say account for each time that she allegedly used the stolen credit card.
"At this time we would like to thank the staff at CareOne for their assistance and full cooperation with these investigations, made slightly more difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic," Brookline Police said in a written statement.
Police said it is likely Boutin could face additional charges once they complete similar investigations at CareOne.
