Glennie senior charged with embezzlement

ALPENA, Mich. — A Glennie woman has been charged with stealing money from a vulnerable adult family member.

Seventy-one–year–old Dianna Whitford was interviewed by police on January 16, after an embezzlement complaint was made to Michigan State Police in December of 2019. Whitford allegedly embezzled money from a relative’s checking account, which she had joint access to. She was arrested for one count of embezzlement of jointly held property and one count of embezzlement from a vulnerable adult.

Whitford was arraigned in the 81st district court in Alcona and released on $15,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court again on February 19.
