Health Aide Steals Half Million from Blind Woman
Wilton — a Saratoga Springs woman has been arrested after police say that she cleaned out the bank account of a legally blind Wilton woman in her care.
49-year-old Michele Rose was arrested by the Saratoga County Sheriff’s department after the family of the 82-year-old victim alerted them to the crime.
Investigators say Rose stole more than half a million dollars from the victim. Police say that she wrote checks to herself to cover bills.
Police say that there could be more victims, since Rose works as a home health aide.
