SUMMIT COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

In January of 2014, an Akron man met a 60-year-old developmentally disabled man while riding a bus in Akron. The individual told his wife, Carol Hulett, about the man and she subsequently targeted the man for theft offenses.

Hulett began riding the bus and approached the developmentally disabled victim. Hulett used the alias Emily Parker and pretended to be developmentally disabled as well. Hulett convinced the victim that she was his girlfriend and she started obtaining financial information from him. She found out which days he was paid and she ensured that she was with him on those days. On paydays, she would accompany him to cash his checks and subsequently she would be given cash from the victim.

The victim's family became suspicious when he left the house to meet Hulett and he had all of his banking information with him. On February 1st, The Summit County Sheriff's Detective assigned to the Developmentally Disabilities Board was notified of the incident. The detective was given a picture of Hulett taken by the family.

The detective was able to identify Hulett from the photograph and he located her during a traffic stop. She admitted to the theft and stated her goal was to empty the victim's bank accounts.

Carol Hulett, 36, of Akron was arrested and charged with Theft from the Developmentally Disabled. She booked into the Summit County Jail. Further charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
