LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
Limestone County deputies arrested an 18-year-old Tennessee girl after they said she spent thousands of her sick grandmother's
money on clothes, a hotel room, and videos for her boyfriend.
Investigators said the spending spree included a hotel suite in Florence for her boyfriend, clothing
purchases, and bill payments.
Sheriff Mike Blakely said
18-year-old Marvina Austin got her grandmother to write checks totaling $11,000.
The sheriff's department
said they were contacted after the grandmother's power of attorney called about
the unauthorized checks.
Blakely said Austin is charged with first-degree
theft by deception.
"This is something that we deal with quite
frequently. Elderly people, especially those who may be suffering from dementia
or Alzheimer's are easy prey sometimes and the people that you'd least expect
are some of the family members that are taking advantage of the situation,"
Austin is currently out on
bond. The Limestone County Sheriff's Department said
they are working on recovering some of the money.
