Police say a Rowan County woman stole thousands of dollars from an elderly woman she was supposed to be caring for.

Earlier this week, Kentucky State Police arrested 53-year-old Elaine Bentley, of Morehead, and charged her with knowingly exploiting an adult.

Police say Bentley cared for an 85-year-old woman between October 27 and November 4.

While caring for the woman, police say Bentley stole $900 from the victim's purse, then took her to a bank, where Bentley allegedly had her withdraw $3,000 as an advance payment for Bentley's services.

Later, police say Bentley tried to have $60,000 withdrawn from the victim's bank account.
