Montgomery Teen Accused of Forgery
Rebecca Burylo - Montgomery Advertiser
A Montgomery teen has been accused of stealing thousands of dollars from an 89-year-old woman, and Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey said the case is just one of several instances of exploitation of the elderly in Montgomery.
Bailey said it's a growing problem that is "simply despicable."
The most recent case involves Hazel Brown, who lives in the Dalraida community. She noticed a series of checks had been cashed in her name without her knowledge, and she immediately reported it to police. The checks totaled more than $2,000.
