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.
