RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Racine woman has been arrested after police say she stole and used credit cards and stolen checks from her grandfather.

Heather Salas faces several counts of 'unauthorized use of an entity's identifying information, crime against an elderly or disabled person.'

According to the criminal complaint, Salas used the stolen credit cards to make 17 fraudulent purchases between April and May of 2017. Additionally, Salas allegedly cashed checks without the victim's consent at Wells Fargo Bank.

Officers made contact with the victim who told police that Salas is his grandchild by marriage and that she was supposed to be helping him with his bills since he's blind in one eye.
