But, authorities say, as she was in the victim’s Lido Beach home, she stole his Social Security number and debit card information.

Plummer is accused of then using that information to pay her bills, including a number of New York City parking tickets.

Plummer turned herself into police after another home care attendent discovered the thefts.
