Kelsey Lavina Bontrager
"swindled" out of money
Kelsey Lavina Bontrager, 19, of Williston, was arrested Aug. 8 by the Barnwell County Sheriff's Office after an autistic man complained she took his money.
After meeting Bontrager in June, the victim told deputies she "pressured" him into giving her money on multiple occasions. "He did not want (to) make her mad so he would give her what she wanted," states the BCSO incident report. "This was the first time a pretty girl has shown him some attention so he thought she cared about him."
In total, the victim alleges he gave Bontrager $200 of his own money, plus bought gas several times using his parents' account. On one occasion when he did not have any money, the report states Bontrager asked the victim to pawn his possessions, but he was unable to.
The report also states Bontrager snorted "white stuff" in front of him and appeared to purchase drugs another time.
Bontrager was released to the Barnwell County Detention Center.
