BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man and a woman have been arrested for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from a man in their care.

Baton Rouge police say 47-year-old Rodney Thomas and 47-year-old Alyssa Thomas, both of Baker, have been charged with felony theft and exploitation of the infirmed.

They are accused of stealing more than $80,000 from a 56-year-old client they were taking care of in February.

Police say they turned themselves in to authorities Thursday morning.

The Thomases own a business called Thomas Place Recovery, in which they care for the infirmed and mentally challenged.

The business is located on Dallas Drive.
