PINEVILLE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Police say a Dry Prong woman who had been a caretaker for a Pineville woman is facing charges after allegedly forging checks and refusing to return the woman's vehicle.

35-year-old Venessa Ann Gauthier was arrested this week and booked with forgery, theft of the assets of a disabled person and unauthorized use of a movable.

Police say Gauthier allegedly cashed multiple checks for $750 and then refused to return the victim's vehicle after she'd been allowed to use it.

Gauthier was released from jail on a $3,250 bond.

It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
