Caregiver Arrested for Allegedly Stealing Tens of Thousands of Dollars

(Noble County, IN)-A 45 year old woman from Reading, Michigan was recently jailed on a charge alleging she stole more than $51,000 from a man she was supposed to be caring for.

The investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Mike Carroll revealed in August of 2015, Michelle Lynn Alexander, 45 of Reading, Michigan was appointed by the Noble County Circuit Court as a court appointed guardian of a then 59 year old man from Kendallville who suffered from declining mental and physical health.

During the time period between October 2015 and December 2015, it is alleged that Alexander accessed the victim’s bank account and used his disability checks for her own financial benefit, and not the benefit of the victim.  The total loss incurred by the victim totaled more than $51,000.

In July of 2016, the victim was transferred to a mental health facility in Jay County by Alexander and shortly thereafter, a new guardian had been appointed because of a lack of communication from Alexander.  An audit was then conducted and the significant discrepancies in the victim’s finances were discovered.  Carroll was made aware of the theft in May of this year, and following a four month long investigation, the case was presented to the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office who filed the following charge:

  • Theft, Level 5 Felony

Alexander turned herself into the Noble County Jail on September 24, 2017 and has since been released on bond.
