HOUSTON -

A man has been accused of borrowing over $20,000 from an 82-year-old woman and not paying her back.

Jerry Marco, 47, was charged with theft and is being held on no bond.

Houston police said the victim was on medication that may have influenced her to loan the money.

Investigators said the theft started in a parking lot when Marco met the victim and offered to repair her car. He followed her back to her home to get paid and proceeded to borrow over $20,000 from her over the next two months, investigators said.

Authorities said Marco never paid her back and has a lengthy criminal record.
