Late last year, the Cookeville Police Department began investigating allegations that 59-year-old Kennith Orbit Boles, Jr. may have financially exploited his father (Kennith O. Boles, Sr.) during a period spanning approximately eight months.

After an extensive investigation lead by Detective Justin Long, the case was presented to the grand jury charging Boles, Jr. with the class A felony offense of financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult in an amount exceeding $60,000.

Following the return of an indictment by the Grand Jury, Boles Jr. was arrested by police officers yesterday (March 5, 2021). He was transported to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department where he is being held on a $50,000.00 bond. He will be brought before the court this Monday (March 8, 2021) for arraignment.

This investigation was a joint effort involving the Cookeville Police Department and the Office of the District Attorney General for the 13th Judicial District. Crimes against elderly and vulnerable adults are taken very seriously in this jurisdiction. The public is asked to report any suspicions related to the victimization of this particularly vulnerable population within our community.
