A Talmo woman allegedly took $215,000 from a disabled man, putting some into her own account, according to authorities.

The 54-year-old man first made a report to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office Jan. 28.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said Stephanie Elaine Moon, 48, allegedly exploited the man between Feb. 19, 2019, and Feb. 6 of this year.

Moon is accused of taking “approximately $215,000 from him for her own benefit,” Booth wrote in a news release.

“Moon, who oversaw the victim’s funds, refused him access to money for living expenses, according to the preliminary investigation,” Booth said.

Investigators obtained a warrant for Moon Feb. 11 on a charge of exploitation of a disabled person and arrested her the next day. She has been released from jail on a $16,700 bond.

The case is still under investigation.

“Investigators continue to work to verify her purchases with the funds. Some of the money was transferred to Moon’s own account,” Booth wrote in an email.

No attorney information was available for Moon Friday, Feb. 14, and no numbers were listed publicly on online databases.
