Warrant out for woman accused of stealing from elderly

A warrant was issued today for a woman who allegedly posed as a school official and stole from at least three people.

Kimberly L. Anderson is wanted for one court of theft from the elderly. She allegedly obtained a flier from Morrison Elementary School that contained scripts for selling business gift cards. She then allegedly went door-to-door Oct. 7 and sold the cards, claiming to work for the school, according to court documents.

Anderson allegedly took money from three victims, one older than 70, and fled the area. The case is being handled by the Athens County Sheriff’s Office.

Anderson’s birth date and address are unknown. She is described as 5 feet 6 inches, 175 pounds with brown or blonde hair, and a tattoo of a skull on her right shoulder blade, according to court documents.

Theft from the elderly is a fourth-degree felony. Anderson could be sentenced to a maximum of 18 months in prison and fined a maximum of $5,000 if convicted, according to the Ohio Revised Code.
