GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) – A Goldsboro woman faces charges after the sheriff’s office said her grandmother was found locked outside of her home in April.
Tiffany Marie Anstey, 33, was arrested Thursday in connection with the April 23 incident.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said Anstey’s 86-year-old grandmother was locked out of her residence for hours and wandered around until she ended up at a neighbor’s house.
An investigation showed Anstey had been “exploiting her family member for a while.”
Anstey faces a charge of exploitation of a disabled or elder adult through a position of trust. She is being held under a $20,000 bond.
Anstey was not living with her grandmother at the time of the April incident.
