JACKSON, Mississippi — A Philadelphia woman has been arrested for allegedly exploiting a person under her care.

Attorney General Jim Hood says 32-year-old Tabitha Lynn Warren was arrested Tuesday by investigators with his office's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and booked into the Leake County jail. Bond information was not immediately available. It was unknown if she had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

The arrest followed Warren's indictment by the Leake County Grand Jury on two counts of felony exploitation of a vulnerable person.

Hood says Warren is accused of unauthorized actions involving two credit cards of two separate accounts of the alleged victim for whom she served as a caregiver.

If convicted, Warren faces up to 10 years on each count.
