Cops: Orangeburg man stole grandma's wheelchair

Posted: Updated:

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - Investigators say they have arrested an Orangeburg man who stole money from his grandmother, along with her electric wheelchair.

Orangeburg County sheriff's deputies say 43-year-old Richard Fleener II will have a bond hearing Monday. He is charged with abuse of a vulnerable adult.

Authorities say Fleener was living with his 78-year-old grandmother from November until February when he stole so much money from her that her power was shut off for several days.

Investigators say Fleener also stole his grandmother's electric wheelchair, television and window air conditioning unit.

Deputies did not know if Fleener had an attorney.
