Sun couple arrested for exploiting neighbor

Updated:

COVINGTON, La. (AP) - A Sun couple faces charges for taking $330,000 from an elderly neighbor.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that 45-year-old Calvin Thibodaux and his wife, 44-year-old Darnay Thibodaux, were arrested Saturday with one count each of exploiting the infirmed. Authorities say each posted a $50,000 bond and was released later that day.

The sheriff's office began investigating when relatives of the victim contacted authorities several weeks ago. Detectives discovered that the Thibodauxs obtained power of attorney over the victim while he was hospitalized.

The couple then bought two cars, a truck, a tractor, two utility trailers, a 4-wheeler, a boat and motor, a 30-foot camper trailer, a handgun and a piece of property with a mobile home on it.
