On September 22, 2022, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to Rising View Way in reference to a report of Fraud. Upon arrival, the victim advised that on September 20, 2022, a charge posted on the banking account in the amount of $500, charged through an app called Square and was also missing cash from a wallet. The bank had already been contacted and the charge disputed.
Following an investigation by the Randolph County Criminal Investigations Division, charges were sought on the victim’s caretaker, Veronica Andrade.
