CLEARWATER, Fla. — A Clearwater woman is accused of stealing more than $9,000 from an elderly woman through dozens of illegal credit card transactions, Pinellas County deputies said.

Meghan Martin, 28, was arrested Tuesday on 50 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card. Her bail is set at $241,000.

According to affidavits, Martin got the victim's ATM/debit card without her permission or knowledge.

Between December 2018 and March 2019, she used it to withdraw cash in amounts ranging from $60 to $800, the affidavits claimed. The victim did not find out about the withdrawals until much later, according to law enforcement.
