STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman has been charged with stealing money from her mother with dementia to support a drug habit.
Police say 47-year-old Michelle Mammone stole nearly $4,300 from her mother.
According to a police affidavit, Mammone experienced a relapse after being drug-free for nearly a decade. She told police she wanted to pay her mother back, but did not have the money.
Her mother and sister told police they wanted Mammone prosecuted.
Mammone was charged with second-degree theft. She is being held in jail on $20,000 bond and could not be reached.
