No charges for Pinellas Park man previously accused of stealing from elderly uncle

LARGO — The Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office has decided not to prosecute a 58-year-old man who was accused of stealing nearly $123,000 from his uncle.

Pinellas sheriff's deputies arrested Gary Goodrow in December based on an accusation that he had stolen from his 79-year-old uncle by making numerous cash withdrawals from his account.

The amounts ranged from $46 to $3,400 over a three-year period. Deputies said it was grand theft.

But defense attorney Jorge Angulo said Goodrow had power of attorney for his uncle, and that every cash withdrawal was for his uncle's expenses.

After reviewing the allegations and evidence, prosecutors decided earlier this month not to file formal charges against Goodrow.
