FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — A Farmington woman faces 111 felonies charges after authorities say she secretly accessed her mother-in-law's bank account to take trips, buy jewelry and upgrade her tanning bed.

The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/NXCGg0 ) U.S. Marshals arrested Debbie Lefebre-Lambert on Tuesday. She is accused of stealing $70,000 from her mother-in-law, Pamela Lambert.

Lefebre-Lambert was charged with 111 felonies, including 49 counts of unlawful withdrawal from a financial institution and 50 counts of identity theft.

According to court documents, Pamela Lambert says her daughter-in-law may have gained access to her personal banking information and mailbox when she spent time at her house taking care of her elderly husband.
