The Daytona Beach Police Department were first on the case, acting on a complaint about missing funds from a bank account set up to pay for the ongoing medical expenses of a Port Orange detective.

It was not specified when the investigation began, but the case was eventually taken over by FDLE due to jurisdictional issues, as well as the involvement of a law enforcement officer.

It was found that Kilpatrick established the account in 2016 while still a captain at the Port Orange Police Department and allegedly withdrew more than $18,000 and $7,500 to pay off a consolidated loan and to close on a new home, FDLE said.

Kilpatrick faces charges of grand theft and the exploitation of a disabled adult. Her case will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office for the 7th Judicial Circuit, FDLE said.
