Grovetown police are looking for a woman accused of stealing over $38,000 cash from a disabled man she met through an escort app.

Kelsey Beverlin, 29, is wanted for exploitation of a disabled adult, credit card fraud and theft by taking.

The caretaker of the 49-year-old Grovetown victim said that he learned that Beverlin had stolen $38,000 cash as well as $225 from the victim’s account and his Georgia ID, two debit cards and a cell phone.

According to a police report, the disabled victim met Beverlin on Skipthegames app, which is an escort website. She asked the victim if she could stay at his home on Jan. 20.

“The victim stated the offender was with him inside his residence when he noticed the offender on his cell phone,” the report says. “He could hear his cell phone dinging and asked the offender what she was doing, and she said she was on the phone with friends.”

The victim fell asleep and woke up to find Beverlin gone and his wallet missing along with his cell phone and $38,000 cash he kept in his closet. Money was also gone from his bank account.

The victim said he didn’t know the woman’s name, but an investigation led to Beverlin’s identity. She has been arrested multiple times in Augusta, where she lives. Previous charges include two shoplifting offenses, drug possession, obstruction and disorderly conduct.

According to Grovetown police, the suspect has connections in Grovetown, Evans and Augusta. She may be driving a dark BMW sedan.

If you have information on her location, please call Grovetown police at 706-863-1212. Police say she should not be approached.
