HARRINGTON, Del. - Police say a Harrington woman is now behind bars after she allegedly stole an elderly man's check book.

According to reports, Clements is charged with 33 counts of theft under $1,500 where the victim is 62 years or older and 34 counts of Forgery Second Degree.  Reports say she is being held on $50,000 secured bond.  

The Harrington Police Department is continuing its investigation to determine if more suspects are involved.
