Posted: Updated:

BENTON, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Bossier Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a Princeton woman for stealing the identity of her live-in grandmother.

According to police she then spent more than $100,000 buying vehicles, computers and home improvements without her grandmother's permission or knowledge.

The sheriff's office says that 35-year-old Alyson D. Jones was arrested following a four-month probe by the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force that found Jones had swindled her 84-year-old grandmother of all her finances since 2009.

The sheriff's office says Jones admitted taking advantage of her grandmother, but denied she was stealing from her.

She was booked with eight counts of money laundering, four counts of identity theft, 11 counts of felony theft and one count of racketeering. She's being held on a $130,000 bond at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.
