5th suspect arrested for allegedly bilking disabled veteran

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A fifth and final suspect is in jail charged with stealing more than $260,000 from a disabled veteran in Brunswick County.

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office says Lisa McClain faces several charges in connection with the investigation. Her four alleged accomplices were arrested last year.

Investigators say McClain worked as an in-home caregiver for the victim and used that access to clean out the victim’s bank account.

Investigators say McClain and the other four women ran a debt consolidation/bill pay service business as a front to steal money from Nash. McClain allegedly paid bills to Time Warner Cable and Progress Energy, among other businesses, out of Nash’s account and pocketed the cash from her customers.

McClain also faces charges in New Hanover and Columbus counties according to jail records.
