YORK - A Williamsburg woman is facing three felony charges in York County after being accused of convincing a mentally incapacitated man into opening multiple credit card accounts, which sheriff's deputies say she used to make purchases with a combined total of up to $9,000.
Chaiese L. Harris, 28, was arrested June 16 on three counts of financial exploitation of a mentally incapacitated person, according to an arrest log from the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office. Lt. Dennis Ivey Jr. with the sheriff's office said the mother of the male victim reported the incident.
According to Ivey, the charges stem from Harris convincing her mentally incapacitated boyfriend to open three credit cards at banks or credit unions in the area. Ivey said Harris used the credit cards to make $3,000 to $9,000 worth of purchases, including a moped and a car.
