HARRINGTON, Del. - A former funeral services owner has been charged with felony theft after allegedly defrauding an elderly victim of more than $6,000, Delaware State Police announced Thursday. 

The charges stem from an incident in April of 2015. Police say an 88-year-old Harrington man informed them he pre-paid $6,300 to Deborah E. Harris-Nock Funeral Services, in Laurel, Del., in 2008.

Police say the company closed in 2013 and it told the victim it would not be able to provide the services. Police say numerous attempts were made in an attempt to get reimbursement for the funds which were not fulfilled. 

Police say 61-year-old Deborah E. Harris-Nock, of Greenwood, turned herself into detectives at Troop 3 Thursday, after a warrant was obtained for her arrest. She was charged with theft $1500 or greater and victim is 62 years of age or older, according to police. They say she was released on $2,000 unsecured bond.

If anyone has had similar incidents involving the Deborah E. Harris-Nock Funeral Services police ask them to contact Sgt. J. Lloyd at 302-741-2802. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
