Detectives say they arrested a 68-year-old man on additional charges of elderly exploitation Tuesday after he allegedly stole from a 76-year-old victim on several occasions.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said Wayne Joseph Dziadul, 68, was arrested on Feb. 1 for similar, unrelated charges. He was arrested then on a charge of exploitation of the elderly for $100,000 or more.

Sheriffs said Dziadul remains in the St. Johns County Jail with $25,000 bond that was ordered Wednesday morning during first appearance. Detectives said they believe that there may be other victims in the area.

Anyone with any information related to his investigation is asked to call 904-209-3984. You may also leave an anonymous tip and possibly be eligible for a cash reward by calling CrimeStoppers of N.E. Florida at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477).
