Etowah County Man Facing Theft by Deception Charges
Gadsden Police believe they now know who is responsible for illegally collecting donations for a child battling cancer. According to the Gadsden Police Department, 51-year-old Keith Rose is suspected of fraudulently collecting donations on behalf of a fourth grade girl named Rozlyn Green, who is battling cancer. Investigators with Glencoe Police Department are also investigating separate allegations against Rose.
Glencoe Police Chief Alan Kelly tells TV24 that Rose went to several businesses, collected donation checks, and wrote receipts. However, Chief Kelly says the Green family did not give Rose permission to do so. If you may have donated any money to Rose, you are asked to contact the Gadsden or Glencoe Police Department. Rose is currently being held in the Etowah County Detention Center without bond.
