On Thursday at approximately 8:30 a.m., Roanoke Rapids police Investigator G.L. Williams arrested and charged Shermartia Simmons, 31, of Roanoke Rapids, for exploitation of a disabled or elder person.  

Simmons received a $3,000 bond and December 6 court date.

Chief Chuck Hasty said in a statement the charges stem from a report filed on October 3 when Halifax County Adult Protectives Services made a report the victim was made to cosign for a loan for Simmons.  

The victim did not have the mental capacity to sign any legal documents.

Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant G. Evans assisted with the arrest.
