DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The former business administrator of a southwest Ohio center for developmentally disabled adults has been charged with stealing more than $400,000 from the center.

Montgomery County's prosecutor says 46-year-old Douglas Carter of Gahanna was indicted Friday on 15 felony counts including aggravated theft, theft in office, forgery, money laundering and tampering with government records.

Carter was business administrator of a state-operated center in Huber Heights from 2009 until March 2012. Authorities say Carter took Social Security, disability and pension money from an account for patients, using it for personal expenses including liposuction.

There was no Gahanna telephone listing for Carter.

An Ohio Inspector General's investigation of the alleged theft has resulted in a report recommending procedures for the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities to safeguard residents' funds from potential theft.
