Woman charged with stealing $200K from elderly blind man

Gloria Morvan allegedly used money to buy condo

UXBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has been charged with stealing nearly $200,000 from an 83-year-old legally blind man she was hired to help.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that 61-year-old Gloria Morvan was released on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty to larceny from a person over 65.

According to court documents, Morvan worked as a part-time caretaker for the man, who paid her in cash to help him with several tasks, including writing checks for bills.

The man told police he became suspicious of Morvan, so asked someone else to look at his bank statements and found a $195,000 check had been made out to Morvan.

Police say Morvan used the money to buy a condominium in the Whitinsville section of Northbridge.

She told police the money was a gift.
