A Florida man has stolen crypto fortune from a 61-year-old victim

Aaron Daniel Motta, a 27-year-old cybersecurity expert from Florida, has been slapped with felony charges after stealing $575,000 worth of crypto from an elderly victim, The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Motta managed to steal a Trezor cryptocurrency hardware wallet along with the password while installing a security system at the victim’s house.  

Trezor and other hardware wallets allow their customers to store a slew of cryptocurrencies offline.

He was released on bail on Friday after shelling out $60,000.
