A Farrell woman accused of taking money from a 99-year-old man was given a superseding indictment in Trumbull County Wednesday.

Felicia Splitstone, 35, was indicted by a Trumbull Grand Jury on felony charges of theft from a person in a protected class (F3); forgery (F5); and receiving stolen property (F5).

Splitstone was arrested by Sharon police around 10:30 a.m. on June 28 and booked into the Mercer County Jail while awaiting extradition to Trumbull County.

According to a police report, Splitstone worked as a caretaker for the elderly man between September and December 2023. Police say the family noticed inconsistencies in the victim's signature on some checks and suspected her of taking the checkbook while working.

Police say five checks were made out to Splitstone and a sixth was made out to Cortland Industrial, a company Splitstone rents from. The checks totaled $4,450.

Splitstone last cared for the victim on December 21, 2023, and police say all checks were dated after that day.

In February 2024, the victim told police that a couple of his credit cards were used without his permission with purchases totaling $5,882.99. The purchases were made from companies like Amazon, DoorDash, Playstation and Epic Games (the creators of Fortnite).

Police say the credit cards were kept in the same place as his checkbook.

In all, the purchases totaled $9,899.04 between the checks and credit card purchases.

Police say Splitstone eventually admitted to forging the victim's signature and using his credit cards.

Splitstone was scheduled to appear in Trumbull County Court of Common Pleas on April 23 for a pretrial hearing but didn't attend. A capias warrant was issued after she failed to show.

A court date has not yet been scheduled for Splitstone.
