Authorities say it was at Farmer's Bank in Frankfort where 39 year-old Linda Trumbo allegedly cashed checks and withrew around $50,000 from an elderly woman's account.

According to Franklin County Commonwealth's Attorny Larry Cleveland, Trumbo was placed in a position of trust with 92 year-old Lula Caldwell.

It's not clear exactly what relationship the two woman had, but they may be related. Online records show they lived in the same apartment building on Tierra Linda Drive.

"As a result of that position of trust, (Trumbo) was able to acces the bank account of the lady," said Cleveland.

Cleveland says between October of last year and January of this year, Trumbo made the withdrawls, and was even caught on tape at the bank.

Authorities say bank records also showed extravagant spending.

"Resorts and restaurants, and places that this 92 year-old who hadn't been out of her home for several months could never have actually done," said Cleveland.

Trumbo has been indicted on a charge of knowingly exploiting an adult by person over 300 dollars.

She is scheduled to be in court Friday morning for her arraignment.
