The owners of New York-based Silent Farm Bed and Breakfast in Goshen are alleged to have stolen money from a mentally disabled man who was living in their barn.
John Quick and his wife, Mary Quick, slowly but surely drained the victim’s bank account without his authorization.
Social services for Orange County removed the man from the quarters meant for a stable hand. The man had been living there for several years, according to officials.
The couple were arrested after a three-month investigation and were charged with endangering the welfare of a vulnerable adult, as well as grand larceny.
A neighbor of the couple had called the cops after he’d lost his heat and running water and realized that the Quicks had been stealing from him as well.
