ALBANY, Ga. — A caregiver who had been on the run since being questioned by police in November in connection to a series of thefts from an 86-year-old woman has been arrested, authorities say.

Patricia Delorse Glenn, 46, was being held in the Dougherty County Jail without bond Thursday, charged with four counts of felony exploitation of an elderly person and 31 counts of financial transaction card fraud.

Dougherty County Sheriff’s Capt. Craig Dodd said that Glenn surrendered to authorities shortly after Sunday midnight at the Dougherty County Jail.

Glenn was originally questioned by Dougherty County police in November after 86-year-old Viola Prather, who was receiving care from Glenn, discovered that $7,367 was missing from her bank account.

When police questioned Glenn at her Dobbs Road home, she denied having any knowledge of the thefts and said that Prather was prone to having ATM card issues.

But as police expanded their investigation, they discovered a series of withdrawals and obtained surveillance tape that reportedly showed Glenn making the withdrawals.

When police went back to Glenn’s home, she had vanished.

Records from the Dougherty County Jail show that she was relocated Monday by Dougherty County Sheriff’s Deputies, arrested and booked into the jail.

As usual, She say's she dint do it, but evidence and video camera says she did. Typical, always blaming the other person. Blaming it on the victim, saying she had issues with the atm card.
