Upon noticing the suspicious transactions, the son contacted the Lady Lake Police who were able to obtain the IP address from an employee of the assisted living facility.

The report states that 20-year-old Kristin Micken allegedly used a Square mobile credit card reader that attaches to a mobile phone to fraudulently make the transactions.

Micken was arrested just before 3 p.m. on Monday and transported to the Lake County Jail where she remains in lieu of a $30,000 bond.

Micken was charged with 6 counts of Criminal use of personal identification. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 10 at 8:30 a.m. for her arraignment.
