BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings man is charged with stealing nearly $16,000 from a resident of the assisted living center where he worked.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1848XjV ) 44-year-old Todd Michael Garlock made an initial appearance Friday in Justice Court on charges of exploitation of an older person and deceptive practices. He did not enter a plea and posted a $35,000 bond. His arraignment in District Court is set for March 15.

Prosecutors allege that when Garlock worked at River Ridge Assisted Living in Billings a 79-year-old woman gave him her debit card and PIN to purchase medication.

Court records say an internal investigation found Garlock spent more than $16,000 of the woman’s money. Her medications cost less than $450.

Charging documents say Garlock resigned in September after telling River Ridge’s administrator that he took at least $14,000.
