Katricia D Williams, 36, of the 1100 block of West 127th Street, Chicago, was a health care worker for a 68-year old Hinsdale woman from July to September 2016, Hinsdale police said.
While working in the woman's home on the 700 block of South Garfield Avenue, she gained access to the woman's financial information and allegedly used the patient's name, checking account and credit cards to pay bills, shop online and pay jail commissary accounts for her family members totaling an estimated $3,500, police chief Kevin Simpson said.
The crimes were reported Sept. 7. A DuPage County grand jury indicted Williams June 27 for continuing a financial crimes enterprise, financial exploitation of the elderly and 11 counts of aggravated financial identity theft, all felonies.
Officers from the DuPage County Sheriff's Office took Williams into custody Tuesday and took her to the DuPage County Jail, Simpson said.
It was "a long, drawn out case that came to a successful end," the police chief said.
