Congers woman charged with stealing from disabled man

NEW CITY – A Congers woman, who cared for a disabled man, has been arrested and charged with stealing thousands of dollars from him.  Debra Ann Mills, 53, was charged with grand larceny in the third degree.

Over a 13 month period between October 2005 and December 2006, it is alleged that Mills stole over $3,000 from the Supplemental Needs Trust fund for the benefit of Theodore Thorne. She had access to the fund set up for him by his late mother.

Over the course of several months, the funds were misused to pay for Mills’ personal expenses including household bills, said Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe.

The arrest stemmed from an investigation by the DA’s Special Investigations Unit.

Mills was arraigned and released on her own recognizance.
