Pasco deputies: Caregiver used quadriplegic's credit card

SEVEN SPRINGS — A caregiver is accused of racking up about $2,000 on a credit card belonging to the 62-year-old quadriplegic in her care.

Faith Rosalyn Eshleman, 51, had been caring for the man for about six weeks when his Visa bill arrived with $1,961 in charges he didn't recognize, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. The victim had called deputies a month earlier to report about $1,200 in transfers from his bank to another account he didn't recognize. He suspected one of his caregivers was the culprit.

Eshleman, who is on drug offender probation for uttering forged bills, fraudulent use of credit cards and personal ID and organized fraud, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of grand theft and 11 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

Eshleman, of 3648 Rosewater Drive in Holiday, remained Wednesday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $27,000 bail.
