TAMPA, Fla. — A nurse at a Tampa veterans hospital has been charged with racking up thousands of dollars on the stolen credit cards of a 90-year-old patient.

Tampa Police say Deana Coney-Wright has been taking Robert Parsons' credit cards and returning them for the past three months, buying gifts for herself and giving the cards to friends. She has been charged with grand theft, exploiting the elderly and fraudulently using a credit card.

Maxima Jackson has also been charged in the scam.

Tampa Police say surveillance video from a local shopping center shows the suspects using the credit cards.

Parsons is a World War II veteran who served in the European Theater from 1941 to 1946.
