$6,000 to bail a boyfriend out of jail and more than $10,000 on furniture. Police say Daisy Edwards stole it all from a sister in her care.

Now she can't bail herself out of jail or afford an attorney.

Edwards was arrested on Tuesday, charged with three counts of exploiting an adult.

Her arrest report says Edwards was the guardian of her mentally disabled sister, Ivalene Smith.

Police say in February, she admitted to taking her sister's money and spending it on things for herself, such as bailing a friend from jail and paying for his lawyer, then spending her sister's money to redecorate the house.

Police say they'd been investigating Edwards for awhile and now have enough evidence to arrest her.
