Nursing Home Aide Arrested on Fourteen Counts of Elder Abuse After Stealing from Residents

A woman working as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at a senior care facility has been accused of stealing residents' jewelry and money. The woman was arrested this week on fourteen counts of abuse of a dependent adult, each count punishable by up to five years in prison.

According to police, the woman stole from the residents while she was on-duty over a period of several months. The value of the stolen items totals almost $10,000, police say. The facility suspended the employee initially and has since terminated her employment. Facility representatives reported the missing items to police on behalf of the residents.
