MAYWOOD, N.J. – A home health aide rang up nearly $3,500 in charges on the credit card of an 88-year-old Maywood woman she’d been caring for, authorities charged.

Kareen Carnegie, 27, of Paterson, had worked since June for the woman, who notified police on Wednesday of suspicious credit card purchases, Police Chief David Pegg said.

Detective Sgt. Richard Brown and Detective Jason Liaban quickly zeroed in on Carnegie, who Pegg said charged $3,435 on the elderly victim’s card at various businesses in Maywood, Rochelle Park and Paterson.

Carnegie was charged with theft- and fraud-related counts and released pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Court in Hackensack.
