LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office has arrested a woman Louisville Metro Police say stole $2,000 from two people who are legally blind.
According to an arrest warrant, 24-year-old Regina Vaughn was a caretaker for two people -- a man and a woman who are both 80 years old and legally blind -- in May. During that time, the two discovered that unauthorized transactions were being made on their debit card, so they called police.
Police say they discovered that Vaughn had made $2,000 worth of ATM withdrawals on their debit card. According to the arrest warrant, PNC Bank recorded surveillance video of Vaughn using the card, entering the victims' PIN and taking the cash.
The elderly pair confronted Vaughn about the money, and she allegedly admitted to using their card. A warrant was issued for her arrest on Wednesday, July 30, and she was taken into custody on Saturday, Aug. 2.
She is charged with knowingly exploiting an adult and fraudulent use of a credit card.
