CRESTLINE • A psychic was arrested after she allegedly embezzled a large amount of cash from a woman who was plagued by a “spirit,” San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials said Wednesday.

Cindy Uwanawich, 56, was arrested Friday after the self-proclaimed psychic allegedly didn’t return an undetermined amount of money to a client in December, according to a sheriff ’s press release.

Uwanawich, who operates The Psychic Door on Lake Drive, invited the alleged victim to the psychic’s home on Dec. 17, where the victim paid the psychic $50 for two readings, the release said.

The psychic told the victim that she had the spirit of a person who had drowned attached to her, and if she gave Uwanawich nine pennies, nine nickels, nine dimes, nine quarters and $9,000 for nine days, the spirit would be removed, officials said.

Uwanawich, also known as Cindy McKinney, was booked into the West Valley Detention Center and bail was set at $50,000.

Investigators believe Uwanawich may have victimized other people in a similar fashion. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Scott Thies at (909) 336-0600.

  1. How unfortunate that this psychic tricked a woman into giving her money. Most psychics are drawn to the paranormal because they have genuine gifts; they don’t choose this path for money or glory; in fact, many of them live on small incomes. They are called to serve and they do so willingly.

  2. Haha, love that picture too! Is it real or photoshopped? I hope it’s real.

    1. I think it’s real. I’m not sure. I’d love to find out it is real.

  3. Did she make up that last name? (U wanna witch?)

    1. LOL! You know, i didn’t even notice that … nice catch!
