A woman operating a storefront psychic reading shop in downtown Hopkins has been charged with swindling two of her clients with psychological problems out of tens of thousands of dollars each by claiming that she could rid them of curses.
Cynthia J. Evans, 26, was charged in Hennepin County District Court with two counts each of financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult and theft by swindle. Evans was charged by summons and is due back in court on Dec. 7.
Evans declined Wednesday to answer questions about the charges but did say that Psychic Readings, located on the second floor of a building in the 800 block of Mainstreet, is closed indefinitely.
