A caretaker responsible for an 80-year-old Cobb County woman allegedly used her credit and debit cards more than 170 times, stealing more than $21,000, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Julia Bell, 49, turned herself in Wednesday on charges of exploiting the elderly.

Bell was assigned to care for the woman at the Marietta Country Club, the news station reported. Instead, she allegedly used her cards to go shopping and withdraw cash.

Channel 2 reported that officials investigated the woman for eight months.
