REDMOND, Wash. (AP) - Police in the Seattle suburb of Redmond say they've arrested a 65-year-old woman accused of stealing more than $67,000 from her elderly parents and depriving them of proper food, medication and care.
    
Police allege the daughter strapped her mother into her bed for as long as 12 hours a day and also strapped her into a wheelchair. Both parents suffer from dementia and the daughter had power of attorney for them.
    
Lt. Charlie Gorman says the daughter was taking more than $3,000 a month to care for the pair.  She was arrested Tuesday for investigation of unlawful imprisonment and first-degree theft and then released. She was not identified.
    
King County prosecutor's spokesman Dan Donohoe tells The Seattle Times the case has not yet been turned over to prosecutors for a charging decision.
    

Gorman says the 89-year-old mother and 92-year-old father are now at an adult family care home.
