Authorities say a woman is facing charges after allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from a man who kept his money underneath his bed mattress.

According to an arrested warrant filed in Floyd County, Gena Cavins, 41, of Columbus, Ohio is charged with theft of more than $10,000.

Over several weeks, starting in August 2013, Cavins is accused of stealing $25,000 from a man who lived in Floyd County. According to the complaint, the victim had the money in envelopes underneath his bed mattress.

Cavins was arrested last week in Georgetown, Kentucky.
