A worker at a west suburban assisted living facility is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from residents.

Thirty-seven-year-old Linda Cottrell, of Justice, Ill., is charged with financial exploitation.

Prosecutors say Cottrell had access to a safe where the ATM cards of residents were kept. They say she took more than $8,800 from four residents at the Cupertino Home in Warrenville.
