BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Terry Brown, 53, of Saint Rose was apprehended after an investigation by the Baton Rouge Police Department. The investigation looked into claims that “valuable items” were taken from a nearly 90-year-old woman who lives on Drusilla Lane.

An officer spoke with the daughter of the alleged victim on Thursday, Jan. 5. The daughter said “they hired an in-house care service to care for her,” according to the affidavit. After that, the aforementioned items could no longer be found by the daughter.

  • Louis Vuitton purse worth $2,500
  • Three Coach purses valued at $450 each
  • Gold cufflinks valued at $450
  • Gold bracelet

According to the affidavit, $4,300 worth of items were taken. Brown was subsequently fired by her employer.

Brown was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Wednesday, March 15 and charged with:

  • 1 count of theft
  • 1 count of exploitation of the infirmed

The Saint Rose woman was released the following day on $180 bond.
