SEATTLE, Wash (CBS) -- Police in the Seattle suburb of Redmond arrested a 65-year-old woman for abusing her mother and father.
They accuse her of stealing more than $67,000 from her elderly parents and depriving them of proper food, medication and care.
Police say the daughter strapped her mother into her bed up to 12 hours a day. She also strapped her into a wheelchair.
Both parents suffer from dementia and the daughter had power of attorney for them.
Police say the daughter was taking more than $3,000 a month to care for the pair.
She was arrested Tuesday for investigation of unlawful imprisonment and first-degree theft and then released.
Police have not released her name.
The 89-year-old mother and 92-year-old father are now at an adult family care home.
