A 35 year old Etowah County woman who’d been acting as a caregiver for a local resident is now in jail, facing an array of charges.

According to the information contained in a news release from Leesburg Police Chief Lanny Ransum the investigation headed up by Investigator Brian Gilliland was a very complex one – resulting in a total of 18 different felony charges being brought against a Gadsden resident identified as Kristy Williams.

The charges include Theft of Property 2nd Degree, Forgery 3rd Degree, and Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card.

While working as a caregiver for the victim Williams allegedly took checks and a credit card and used them for personal gain over the past several months.

She currently remains in the Cherokee County Detention Center with bond set at $10,500.

Chief Ransum wishes to commend Investigator Gilliland for the excellent job he has done in pulling everything together and investing long hours in tracking down the information, and proof, needed to make the case.
