ROSEVILLE, Calif. - A Sacramento woman is facing charges in connection with elder abuse and identity theft involving a 92-year-old woman in her care.

Placer County Sheriff's Deputies arrested 27-year-old Charisma Denise Wells for an incident from November of 2018, related to a Roseville woman.

Detectives say the victim's daughter said she discovered unusual charges on her mother's credit card a few days after Wells had taken care of her as a "fill-in" caretaker.

An investigation discovered Wells spent over two-thousand dollars using the victim's credit card between mid-November and mid-January. 

A search of her phone also turned up photos of the 92-year-old victims' credit card and another credit card belonging to a second elderly victim from Davis.

Charges have also been filed against Wells in Sacramento in a separate but similar case.

Wells is charged with elder abuse and identity theft and posted bail after her arrest.

Cooler and cloudier today, record heat expected today, then the chance for high fire danger or showers next week.
