Wexford Co. Man Accused of Abusing his Grandfather

A Wexford County man faces jail time after police say he failed to take care of his grandfather and stole his money.

It happened when Jerry Thomas was living with his grandfather in Cadillac.

Thomas is charged with embezzlement of a vulnerable adult, second degree vulnerable adult abuse, and for being a habitual offender.

Police say he took money from his grandfather’s Social Security benefits and pension, all while neglecting his needs.

Thomas will return to court next week.
