EATON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Richmond woman is accused of stealing from developmentally disabled residents living in a New Paris facility.

Kristina Henley, 44, was arrested Thursday after an indictment was handed down against her this week by a Preble County grand jury.

Investigators say Henley used the checking account of Foundations residential facility to buy items at local stores. They say she made the purchases under the guise that she was giving the items to the residents.

Deputies say she bought clothing, electronics and gift cards, all items the residents would not be able to use. Some of the items were then returned to the store for a cash refund, but none of that money made it back to the residents.

The purchases date back to 2012. They total more than $12,000.

Deputies have identified 13 victims in the case. Henley is charged with one count of theft. She is being held in the Preble County Jail pending her first court appearance.
