Police believe Stewart befriended the woman and used her credit card without her knowledge. In July, police added four additional fraud-related charges against Stewart, connected to offenses against the same elderly victim between Aug. 15, 2014 and Apr. 15, 2016. Police say the elderly woman lost about $160,000.
