Emely Santiago, a housekeeper at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, is accused of stealing from guests.
A Walt Disney World hotel housekeeper is facing charges, accused of stealing from guests.
Orange County deputies said Emely Santiago stole a credit card and cash from a guest at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.
They said the thefts happened in May and Santiago was caught when she tried to use the card at Walmart, located on U.S. 192 and Bass Road in Kissimmee.
Deputies said Santiago could be connected to other thefts at the resort, in which cash, medication, and jewelry were stolen from hotel rooms.
Santiago admitted to investigators that she had an addiction to pain medication following a domestic altercation in October 2012.
She has since bonded out of the Orange County Jail.
