BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Biloxi police have arrested a couple accused of exploiting a vulnerable adult by taking the man’s prescription drugs and other property.

Lt. Aldon Helmert tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1o8ZRpG ) police arrested 45-year-old Robert Earl Brewer and 53-year-old Sherry Suzanne Bartel, both of Biloxi, late Tuesday night.

Helmert said the couple provides care for an older adult. He says police received complaints that they were taking the man’s prescriptions and selling the pills, and taking his money and other property.

Brewer and Bartel are held at the Harrison County jail. Justice Court Judge Bruce Strong set bond for each at $100,000.

It was unclear whether Brewer or Bartel have attorneys.
