A 48-year-old Regina woman is accused of cheating her mother, for whom she held power of attorney, out of $200,000.

According to police, the accused — who has not been named — has been under investigation since March of 2013. That's when police opened a file based on a complaint of missing funds and expenses relating to the mother's care not being paid.

Police did not provide an exact amount of the alleged fraud but said it was in excess of $200,000.

The daughter was arrested and charged Thursday.

Police said the accused person's name would not be released by them, because of her relationship to the alleged victim.

Her first court appearance is set for Feb. 18, in Regina.
