2nd arrest made in financial exploitation case
A Limestone County sheriff's investigator has made a second arrest in a case of financial exploitation of an 85-year-old woman from the Clements community.
Brandon Keith Campbell, 28, of 106 Ranger Drive, Madison, was arrested Thursday on first-degree financial exploitation of an elderly person, records show. He is accused of stealing $12,000 worth of property purchased with a stolen Regions Bank credit card and Bank Independent checks, according to a report filed by Investigator Caleb Durden.
The alleged victim's granddaughter and caregiver, 37-year-old Harmony Teri Marshall of Athens, was arrested Dec. 21 on the same charge in connection with the same case.
During the course of the investigation, the owner of Sound Depot in Madison identified Campbell as the man who used the credit card several times to buy equipment from the store, according to Durden's report. A security specialist at Bank Independent also gave the investigator photographs of Campbell and Marshall cashing the victim's stolen checks. Bank Independent, which identified 10 forged checks written on the account, returned the victim's money to her and will seek $2,125 in restitution.
Durden told The News Courier at the time of Marshall's arrest that she stole the checkbook and credit card and was using them to buy items for her drug dealer, including speakers and other items, in exchange for drugs.
Financial exploitation of the elderly is a Class B felony punishable upon conviction by two to 20 years in state prison.
