Somerset Police Arrest and Charge Palm Reader with Stealing Over $70,000 from Client
Police Asking Potential Victims to Come Forward
SOMERSET — Chief George McNeil reports that the Somerset Police Department arrested and charged a woman who owns a palm reading business with stealing over $70,000 from a client of hers.
TRACEY MILANOVICH, AGE 37, OF SOMERSET was charged with:
- Obtaining Property Over $250 by Trick (Six Counts)
- Larceny Over $1200
- Intimidation of a Witness
MILANOVICH was arraigned on Monday, Dec. 30, at Fall River District Court.
MILANOVICH operated Tracy’s Psychic Palm Reader out of a location on County Street. Anyone who believed they have been victimized by MILANOVICH is asked to contact Somerset Police Officer Donald Cormier at 508-679-2138.
On Dec. 17, Somerset Police launched an investigation into MILANOVICH after a resident reported that she tricked the resident into giving her large sums of money.
The subsequent investigation revealed that MILANOVICH convinced the victim that her daughter was possessed by a demon, and that cash and household items were needed in order to banish the spirit from her daughter.
MILANOVICH was found to have stolen approximately $71,000 from the victim and the victim additionally purchased multiple household items for her, like towels and bedding.
As a result of the investigation, conducted by Somerset Police Officer Cormier and Officer Lance Rhodes, an arrest warrant was obtained and MILANOVICH was placed under arrest on Dec. 27.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
