The Lincoln Journal Star says 50-year-old Geraldine Covalt has been arrested on suspicion of abusing a vulnerable adult. It's a felony charge.
Police Capt. David Beggs says Covalt used her 23-year-old son's debit card and Social Security benefits, on which she is a payee, between August and December.
A Lancaster County jailer says Covalt remained in custody on Thursday. Online court records don't list the name of her attorney.
