Thomasville, Georgia-- The owner of a private homeless shelter, of sorts, in Thomasville is charged with ripping off residents.
Howard Mitchell Junior is charged with 30 counts of financial transaction card fraud. Mitchell operates The Home Place Shelter. About four people live there.
Sheriff's investigators say the crimes started in June when one of Mitchell's residents was admitted to the hospital. They say Mitchell used his status as the primary caregiver to convince the man's bank to give him a new ATM card.
"At first he denied it; gathered a little bit more information on it, brought Mister Mitchell back in, sat down, and did another interview with him; showed him some of the evidence that we did have, and at that time he did confess," says Thomas County Sheriff's Investigator, Pascal Autrey.
Investigators say Mitchell stole more than $5,000. If convicted, he could face 90 years in prison and a $150,000 fine.
