LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been accused of stealing $98,000 from his 82-year-old grandmother.
According to an arrest warrant, 28-year-old William Travis Duley had his grandmother add his name to her personal bank accounts at PNC Bank.
Between May 2011 and Sept. 2012, police say Duley took funds from his grandmother without her knowledge.
"The defendant then gained access to the victim's accounts, cashed out several of her certificates of deposit and placed the money from these CDs into his own personal account," police say.
He also allegedly had his grandmother write him several checks, according to the arrest warrant.
Police say the victim, "has been diagnosed with Dementia and is unable to understand or remember that her grandson stole large amounts of money from her."
Duley was arrested on Wednesday morning and charged with knowingly exploiting an adult and theft by unlawful taking.
