AKRON -- A 46-year-old woman was arrested on allegations she stole Social Security benefits from her son who has developmental disabilities.

Through investigation, authorities say it was determined that Lynda Plum, mother of the victim, was using her son's money for personal gain rather than his needs.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office says Plum stole $1,200 from her son for a two-month period.

She was arrested for theft from the disabled -- a felony -- and booked in the Summit County Jail.

The investigation began in late November.
