On Wednesday, May 3, 2023 at 11:26 A.M., Shiloh Officers were dispatched to Regions Bank located at 400 East Highway 50 in O’Fallon in reference to a possible unlawful use of a credit card with an elderly victim. Upon our arrival, Shiloh Officers met with O’Fallon officers and bank personnel who noticed unusual activity on the victim’s bank account, and notified the O’Fallon police, who contacted the Shiloh Police due to the transactions occurring in Shiloh. The case was submitted to the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.
On Friday, May 12, 2023 St. Clair County Assistant State’s Attorney Elizabeth Nester issued warrant #23CF0083501 for Financial Exploitation of an Elderly Person and warrant #23CF0083502 for Theft, both Class 3 felonies, charging Clydesha F. Lipson, 35, of the 100 block of Kassing Avenue in Fairview Heights, Illinois with the above crimes.
The warrants were reviewed by St. Clair County Judge Leah Captain who set Lipson’s bond at $30,000 with 10% to apply. Lipson is currently in custody at the St. Clair County Jail for want of bond.
The Shiloh Police Department would like to thank the O’Fallon Police Department for their assistance with this case.
