BATON ROUGE - The brother of a disabled man who had $50,000 stolen from him is livid with the accused crook.

Dustin Gant, 31, is accused of stealing from a 58-year-old man diagnosed with Alzheimer's .

"I just wanted to physically hurt the guy," the victim's brother told WBRZ News 2 in an exclusive interview Friday night. "The lowest form of life is someone who preys on someone who can't help themselves."

The man asked not to be identified to protect his family. He said his brother's advanced stage of Alzheimer's prohibits him from speaking in public.

Baton Rouge Police are still searching for Faye Smith, 29, a second suspect in the case. She's believed to have helped Gant steal checks from the victim and forge them.

"You talk about someone who's worked hard for that money and have two people take advantage of him it just infuriates me," the victim's brother said.

Police are unsure if the victim will be able to recover the stolen money.
