Nursing Home Employee Arrested for Selling Jewelry Stolen from Elderly Residents

According to police a woman who stole personal property from several elderly nursing home residents has been arrested. Last month an elderly nursing home resident came forward after realizing she was missing several pieces of her late husband’s jewelry.

Detectives began investigating and discovered an employee of the nursing home had been selling jewelry and a digital camera at a pawn shop. When detectives showed photos of the recovered jewelry to some of the residents of the retirement home, three additional victims came forward to claim their stolen property.

The woman also stole a digital camera from a resident who suffers from memory loss and routinely looked at the pictures on her camera to bring back lost memories. While most of the property has been recovered, police say a few pieces of jewelry are still missing. The woman is facing with four counts of exploitation of the infirm, theft by fraud, and theft of assets of an aged person. For more, read the story.
