Owls Head — Three people expected to care for an elderly Owls Head woman have been charged with stealing more than $20,000 from her, according to a press release from Knox County Sheriff's Office.
The months-long investigation was conducted by Detective Don Murray.
On Aug. 26, Deputy Paul Pinkham responded to a complaint of theft of more than $20,000. The case was turned over to Murray, who concluded two of the suspects involved in the crime were home care givers to the victim, and the third was a friend of one of them, said the release.
Tasha Campbell, 22, of Searsmont and Alicia Rawley, 45, of Waldoboro admitted they had taken the victim's debit and credit cards and used them for cash.
