A 29-year-old Sulphur man has been charged with 10 counts of simple robbery and 10 counts of exploitation of the infirmed, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Joshua C. Gibson, who was already in jail on a charge of cruelty to the infirmed, was rearrested on Oct. 29.

Myers said Gibson was originally arrested on Sept. 16 after allegedly kneeing a 67-year-old family member and pushing her to the ground.

Judge David Ritchie set Gibson’s bond on the cruelty charge at $100,000.

“Detectives continued to investigate the case and learned that Gibson moved into the elderly woman’s home,” Myers said in a news release. “Gibson began financially abusing her by harassing, intimidating and manipulating the victim into giving him money.”

Judge Ritchie set Gibson’s bond at $250,000 for the robbery and exploitation charges, bringing his total bond to $350,000.

Detective Mike Primeaux was the lead investigator on both cases.
