An Alabama woman hired as a caretaker for a 94-year old Niceville resident is now


charged with defrauding the man of nearly 12-thousand dollars over a six month period.


The Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office has charged 30-year old Megan LeAnn Burleson


of Andalusia with elderly exploitation, theft of funds from a person 65 or older, altering or


forging bank bills or checks, and uttering a forged bank bill or check with intent to defraud.


Burleson is currently being held in the Okaloosa County Jail in Crestview.


An OCSO investigator says Burleson became a caretaker for the victim in December


2019. The investigation however revealed between January and May 2020 she stole and


forged a dozen checks, - and between February and May she altered five legitimate


paychecks to make the amount appear greater than what was originally written
