A Bergen woman has been indicted for Grand Larceny.
State Police say 45-year-old Michelle Case of North Bergen Road allegedly ripped off an elderly woman’s bank account for over $35,000 dollars between July 2004 and September 2005.
The elderly woman was Alfreda May of Holley, the mother of Michelle Case’s boyfriend. When May fell ill with dementia, it was reportedly Michelle Case who took her to see a doctor – and who also made herself Alfreda May’s power of attorney.
Authorities say that allowed Case to write checks and withdraw money on Alfreda May’s account.
May is now deceased. Michelle Case may face her charges before a Grand Jury in Orleans County Court.
