Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Caddo deputies say a 43-year-old Shreveport woman who was employed as caregiver for a 77-year-old woman has been arrested for allegedly stealing the woman's money.

Sheriff Steve Prator said Wednesday Sherri A. Hayes used the elderly woman's bank information and debit card to pay her personal bills including car notes, car insurance, utility bills, and cellphone bills, and purchase a diamond ring. The thefts, which occurred between May 12 and June 24, totaled over $5,000.

Hayes was booked with theft of assets of an aged or disabled person and unauthorized use of an access card.

It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
