A Hialeah woman has been arrested and is accused of exploiting several elderly victims.
Police arrested the 38-year-old accused after they say she scammed a number of victims out of hundreds of dollars.
Investigators said, the accused sold what victims believed to be expensive life-saving medications. The "medications" were only vitamins.
Each count of grand theft carries a maximum of 5 years in prison, as does each count of organized scheme to defraud. As well, since each single count carries a $5,000 bond, the accused woman may remain in custody unless a criminal defense attorney is able to get her bond reduced.
