A home health aide is facing charges after sheriff’s deputies say she stole the credit card number of an elderly man from Victor and used it to pay her rent.

Teikia Charles, 36, of Rochester, is charged with grand larceny. 

Sometime during March 21 and May 8, sheriff’s deputies say Charles stole the credit card number off a credit card belonging to an elderly man for whom she was a home health aide. Sheriff’s deputies say Charles then used the stolen credit card number to pay $460 towards rent on her house in Rochester. 

Charles is being held in the Ontario County Jail in lieu of bail.
