‘Spending Spree On Gucci’ Grandson Caretaker Sticks Grandma With The Bill

CLEARWATER, Fla. – 86-year-old Iracema Drysdale, who suffers from disabling infirmities of old age, complained to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office on numerous occasions that her grandson, Tyler Christian Mayoral, had been stealing her monies and leaving her vulnerable. One day she awoke to no water in the house and discovered she owed the City of Clearwater Water Department $3,375.20. Mayoral, who was her caretaker for bill-paying, transportation, housekeeping, food and other day-to-day necessities, ignored his grandmother’s financial responsibilities while he allegedly stole her money and purchased $17,767 in goods and services from Gucci, Airbnb, Universal Orlando, Foot Locker and NBA Store based on investigations into his financial theft. 

Beyond the grandiose spending sprees, Mayoral allegedly withdrew hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars every day from his grandmother’s trust account. In a Complaint-Arrest Affidavit, dated November 11th 2020, it is stated his acts were done by either deception or intimidation.

Mayoral admitted to the allegations against him in a Post-Miranda interview. He was arrested on November 10th on a $20,000 bond. He posted bail, although it is not known how he paid for it.  He was charged with a second-degree felony of “Exploitation of (an) Elderly or Disabled Adult.”  Since 2013, Mayoral has been arrested and released over various driving violations, including the illegal use of a license tag not assigned to him and resisting an officer without violence, and three charges of possession of marijuana.

Ms. Drysdale opened a business called Fiquene, Inc., in July, which, according to Sunbiz.org, is in the business of “any and all lawful business.” Apparently, she is also an investor. Ms. Drysdale is the former owner of Christian Manor of Clearwater, which was voluntarily dissolved in April 2018 after 19 years in business.

Corporal Chuck Skipper in Public Information of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said, “We see cases where people in a position of trust, including family members, neighbors, and guardian, take advantage of a person because they have confidential information.  Siblings sometimes complain when they think their brother or sister is taking advantage of a parent.  Sometimes there’s a case there; sometimes there’s not.”  

No contact information could be found for Ms. Drysdale or her grandson, Tyler.

    This is false and the charge was dropped because none of this was the case. This is slandering my name. I would like this removed or I will have to take legal action.

  2. I personally know Tyler and live down the street.. he littlerly has no life but taking care of his grandma and his kid…there is a difference between not paying the bills cause your shopping at Gucci and not paying the wate bill because your in jail over a Marijuana charge.
