A man has been arrested for allegedly stealing tens of thousands from an at-risk adult.
Police say Howard Lawson, 53, used "deceptive practices" to take more than $130,000 from a 57-year-old woman over a period of several months. Police have not elaborated further on how the money was obtained.
The Colorado Springs Police Department was alerted to the theft on Wednesday, and arrested Lawson the following night. A search warrant for his home was also obtained.
At this time, the relationship between Lawson and the victim has not been released.
Police now ask that anyone with information on Lawson contact the police department immediately. That number is 444-7000.
