DETROIT – Los Angeles police have arrested a Detroit doctor for allegedly stealing from a 92-year-old woman.

Maybel Miles, 92, of Los Angeles, helped put the doctor through college and showed him endless other kindness only to wind up broke after allowing the man to live with her in L.A.

Dr. Carlson Alyn Jackson, 60, of Detroit, is behind bars held on a million-dollar bond and charged with three counts of financial elder abuse.

In June, Miles' family found her inexplicably penniless, considering she owned a million-dollar apartment complex in Los Angeles and lived off of the rent.

The Los Angeles Police Department claims Jackson convinced the elderly woman to sign the building over to him illegally.

Family said Jackson was telling tenants in the building to start paying him the rent because he owned the building.

Jackson regularly summered in Los Angeles with Miles the last few years and lived here in Detroit the rest of the year.

"I hope they catch you and put you in jail," said Miles.

After Jackson lived here in Detroit over the summer, police picked him up Wednesday night at Los Angeles International Airport on a fugitive warrant.

An extensive investigation was conducted by a special prosecutor in the commercial crimes division in Los Angeles. Detectives were waiting for Jackson at LAX when he got off of the plane.

Miles is suing Jackson to get the apartment complex back.
