Woman arrested for theft by deception of over $66,000 from elderly Bulloch Co. couple

BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) - An elderly Bulloch County couple in Statesboro recently reported the theft of over $66,000 over a two year period.

Investigators learned that the couple knew the suspect, 27-year-old Krystal Daniels of Statesboro, through an individual who had performed work for the couple.

Daniels led the couple to believe that she had money coming through lawsuits, estate settlements and other means but that she needed to borrow funds until these "windfalls" could come through.

The couple reported the theft when they realized they believed they were lied to.

Investigators questioned Daniels and took her into custody on charges of felony theft by deception and abuse/neglect/exploitation of an elderly person.

Daniels remains in custody at the Bulloch County Jail pending further judicial action.
