The Orange Police Department arrested a Derby woman, who is accused of kidnapping an elderly woman and forcing her to hand over her credit cards.
On Feb. 14, a woman was confronted outside of a business on Boston Post Road by Holli Tapley, 34. Police said she ordered the elderly victim to drive her around and then forced the woman out of the car.
After taking the woman's credit cards and cash, Tapley purchased items from businesses in Orange and surrounding towns, police said.
Tapley was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of second-degree larceny as well as one count of second-degree kidnapping, second-degree robbery, second-degree threatening, credit card theft and illegal use of credit card.
Tapley is expected to face charges from the Derby and North Haven police departments.
She is being held on a $75,000 bond and is expected to appear in Derby Superior Court on March 4.
