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.

  • South Carolina divers spend two days removing clogs of "flushable" wipes from sewer

    South Carolina divers spend two days removing clogs of "flushable" wipes from sewer

    Saturday, October 20 2018 1:01 PM EDT2018-10-20 17:01:54 GMT

    Divers spent two days deep inside a South Carolina sewer, pulling out huge balls of oily, black used wet wipes and baby wipes that had clogged intake pumps. The Charleston Water System posted pictures of the masses of wipes on its Twitter account. It reminded people that only human waste and toilet tissue should be flushed. The cloth wipes, which have rapidly become popular, need to be thrown away because they are woven and don't break down in water.
