NEW PORT RICHEY — A 38-year-old woman is accused of racking up $22,205 on her 81-year-old grandmother's credit cards and stealing $1,600 from her checking account — all to support her prescription drug habit, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

Dawn M. Perry, who lived with her grandmother on Carmel Avenue in the Seven Springs community, was arrested Tuesday. She faces multiple charges of forgery, uttering a forged instrument and fraudulent use of a credit card.

The thefts happened in January and February. Perry told deputies she stole her grandmother's blank checks and used her credit cards to support her addiction to Oxycodone and Roxicodone pills, documents state.

Perry remained Wednesday in the Pasco County jail in lieu of $46,150 bail.
