MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County teenager and his girlfriend are facing charges for allegedly swindling an 80-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s disease.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2kzKXi4 ) reports that Tyler Evans and Kyleigh Ambrosecchia, both 19, face felony charges and are jailed on $25,000 bond. They do not yet have listed attorneys.

Police say the couple was found passed out in a car Jan. 16 in Maryland Heights. Police say they found drug paraphernalia, suspected heroin and several checks for an account belonging to a woman with Alzheimer’s.

The checks found with Ambrosecchia and Evans had been signed with a misspelled version of the woman’s name.

The couple had been hired in December to do household chores for the victim.
