Police: Teen stole from elderly Atkinson couple

From the Eagle Tribune;

Police: Teen stole from elderly Atkinson couple

By Bryan Deyermond

ATKINSON — A Kingston teen has been charged with stealing from an elderly couple under his care.

Jarred Brisbois, 17, faces a single count of felony theft.

The incident occurred at a home near the intersection of Amberwood and East roads. Police did not release the victims' names or their address, saying only that they were an "elderly couple."

Detective Sgt. Phil Farrar said Brisbois stole antique currency from the couple, as well as gold, and diamond and amethyst jewelry. The total value of the stolen items is unknown, Farrar said.

Brisbois had been helping to care for the terminally ill man and his wife, police said.

The theft occurred Thursday when the woman went to the store, leaving Brisbois in the home with her husband, police said.

The couple filed a complaint with police later that night, and Brisbois was arrested Friday, Farrar said.

Yesterday, Brisbois was in Plaistow District Court and is being held on $20,000 bail.

I hope we get more details from the Tribune. Did he know the couple? Were they friends of the family? What is this world coming to?
