Auxiliary Deputy Arrested After Stealing Nearly $60K From His Elderly Mother

SPRING HILL – A former Hernando County Sheriff’s Auxiliary Deputy is charged with stealing nearly $60,000 from his own mother.

According to officials, Detectives began investigating the finances of 92-year-old Lorraine Miller, after her son Dwayne Miller noticed thousands of dollars missing from her bank account.

Dwayne has power of attorney over Lorraine’s finances and believed his brother, Larry Miller was using their mother’s account as his own.

Throughout the investigation, Detectives determined that Larry Miller deposited Lorraine’s social security into his Region’s account. It was also revealed that Larry fraudulently withdrew funds from her account, stole an insurance check, and even allowed his wife, Lynda Miller, to use Lorraine’s debit card to receive Botox treatments.

During an interview with Larry and Lynda, Detectives confirmed that Lorraine had been suffering from memory loss for about two-years and was completely incapacitated since the summer of 2017.

Officials say the couple stole a total of $57,712.11 from Lorraine and both have been charged with Exploitation of the Elderly.

Both are free on $5,000 bonds each.

Larry started working as an Auxiliary Deputy on October 25th, 2016. Sheriff Al Nienhuis terminated Larry Miller on March 3rd, 2018.

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office does not release photos or mugshots of any agency employee, even if they face criminal charges.

  • Everyone, check your elderly relatives. Stealing from the elderly is the big growth crime of this decade. You don’t need to buy a gun. The thieves do it with a smile.

        Tuesday, 6 March 2018, 12:01 am
          • So they must of put that into effect within the last year, because dallas scarpati is a son of a ex hernando officer and his face was all over your why put a kids face on here but not an older person who was stealing and exploiting the elderly…they both have family members or had in the sheriff’s dept??? Sounds like discrimination to me and others!!

  • My doggies are bigger, hey let’s not do that please I say this all the time on here especially with all the recent stories concerning the hcso not every Deputy is a bad person most are good people there are bad people in every corner of the Earth let’s not make it like all the deputies here or anywhere are bad people Crooks thieves or whatever because they’re not and we need to support them I will always respect and support law enforcement officers even though twice in my long life I’ve had two very very bad encounters with them, in each case it was a single deputy and in each case it was very clear they had serious anger issues and in my opinion should not have had been wearing a badge but anyway those are old stories and though I should have I did not pursue complaints against either one of them anyway let’s support our officers and respect them and quit putting them all down like they’re all the same of one lot or group

  • Joanne, dagashi common sense and many others spot-on I’ve seen this so many times in my life as I’m sure all of us have somewhere on the news maybe Through the Grapevine of someone we know usually it’s druggies but not always either way this is the worst form of low that exist in the world how do you consciously do this to your mother your own mother and yes even allow your wife in on the action how disgusting, Joanne, I think the saddest part is what you said about how good this mother probably took care of these kids when raising them and for all we know she may have been planning on leaving them what she did have when she passed which in my opinion should be common practice too bad they were too greedy to wait how sad, dagashi and some others who commented on a mugshots being posted I agree when you do criminal Acts you should have your face plastered just the same as all of us would this just plain sucks, also thank you to the commenter who clarified what an auxiliary Deputy is I wasn’t sure though I thought it was a volunteer type thing

  • There is not two (2) sets of rules and standards in the USA….one for the taxpayers and a different set of rules for Government Employees. There is ONE Set of Standards Only and if anything Gov’t Employees should be held to far greater and or stringent standards than the ordinary taxpayer. Larry & Linda Miller’s Photos should be displayed even more prominently than the lesser, smaller and or non valued taxpayer.

    Government Employees have earned No Right to be given special exemptions…..and if any other person is arrested their photos, crime scenes, and or videos are shown routinely and this is No Exception.

    But, every literate adult knows there are two (2) sets of standards and it’s a total disgrace

  • Children, or relatives of elderly people have some nerve taking their money. I’ll bet that couple’s Mother was very good to the both of them and for the wife to go and get botox with her Mother-In-Laws bank account money has to be a real low life. I hope they throw the book at them but the sad thing is, by the time the courts “do their thing” the poor lady will probably pass away.

  • What a shameful thing to do. His mom took care of him when he was young and this is the thanks she gets. I don’t care if she doesn’t remember. It’s the principal of this. .

  • “Larry fraudulently withdrew funds form her account” how do you get typos this much?

    • “Larry fraudulently withdrew funds form her account” how do you get typos this much?

      Probably the same way you mispunctuated your reply, Josh.

      If you’re going to correct Tom on his typos, maybe you should look into your grammatical errors (and by saying that, I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt that you actually knew you had a grammatical error.) In case you are unable to comprehend my response, YOURS should have been, “Larry fraudulently withdrew find form her account”. How do you get typos this much? (Although, wording it that way sounds ignorant in itself.)

      Now you know how typos AND grammatical errors occur. You’re welcome. It’s about the CONTENT.

  • Their policy of not releasing the mug shot is wrong. They are providing an extra protection to their employees that they do not provide to the general public.

    • Amen and you are 100% correct and it is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to any person that can read or write. Remember though every Government Employee thinks that money is free and their entitled to a different of rules and standards than the lowly taxpayer. The Politicians all have their hand out for whatever dollars they can take, swindle, or embezzle and their having to vote and or show up for specific meeting and or special assemblies infuriates and agitates them.

    • Sure it is. They are exempt from public records by law. Same with judges, senators, etc.
