Information. Police recently documented a civil issue involving a man on a ventilator, a missing wallet and a suspicious roommate.

According to an incident report, the man's niece told police she was taking care of her uncle's estate as he would soon be removed from life support, and, that her uncle's brother asked her to check her uncle's banking accounts because his wallet and credit cards were missing. He also wanted her to confirm her uncle's stimulus check was deposited. When she went through her uncle's accounts, the niece discovered he only had $5 in his savings account and $11.30 in his checking account. 

She told police she suspected her uncle's roommate had removed the money illegally. Thus, she made contact with said roommate, who told her that her uncle promised him that money. The roommate then became angry, the niece told police, and threw a set of car keys toward her and exclaimed, n a profane manner, that he was getting swindled once again. 

Because her uncle is still alive, and the niece had yet to acquire power of attorney, police advised her that they would document the incident for the time being, until she can legally file a theft report.
