LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville woman is facing charges that she unlawfully used the debit card of a disabled man to withdrawal cash.

An arrest warrant states Rebecca A. Bigler, 30, used the card on seven occasions to make cash withdrawals without the knowledge of the victim, her boyfriend.

The warrant states Bigler was the only person with access to the man's wallet. Police also have surveillance video show a person matching Bigler's description making one of the withdrawals. The warrant says a total of $1,227 was withdrawn from the man's account.

According to the warrant, the victim has limited mental capacity due to a previous brain injury.

Bigler was arrested on charges of fraudulent use of a credit card and knowingly exploiting an adult.
