It wasn't long, police said, before those cameras captured 56-year-old Marilyn Martindale committing crimes.

Video released to WLKY shows Martindale allegedly taking the woman's purse out of view of the camera, then returning it several minutes later. Metro Police said Martindale stole several hundred dollars out of the purse on that occasion. Another video shows Martindale rummaging through the woman's bedroom drawer, police said to steal more money the family had put there as bait.

Crimes Against Seniors detectives said the woman's family turned the video evidence over to them, and after questioning, that Martindale admitted to stealing the money to pay her bills.
