WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WNCN) — Wake Forest police say a woman accused of stealing a credit card at a senior living center turned herself in Tuesday.

Burwell faces one count of obtaining property by false pretense, one felony count of financial card theft and one count of misdemeanor larceny.

The incident happened Monday at Brookdale Senior Living. Police said the suspect entered Brookdale and wandered the halls until finding an open door to an employee’s office. She then rummaged through the desk and found a credit card.

That card was later used at a local grocery store, the news release said.
