Man steals thousands from SA elderly


A man has been charged with stealing more than $200,000 from vulnerable elderly victims in South Australia.

The 67-year-old Bellevue Heights man was charged on Saturday with two counts of dishonest exploitation of advantage and one count of dishonestly dealing with documents.

He allegedly stole the money from an 89-year-old man and a 90-year-old woman by inappropriately using his power of attorney, and used a fake will in an attempt to steal from the woman's estate.

The man has been refused bail to appear before the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Monday.
