Nursing Home Employee Arrested For Stealing from Edlerly Woman

A woman who works as a nursing assistant for two different companies was charged with stealing more than $500 from an elderly woman in her care. The 33 year old care giver was arrested and charged with felony larceny of over $500 on last week after police detectives investigated a son’s allegation that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), had taken money from the purse of his elderly mother.

According to police, the son filed the initial complaint on April 7 and had set up hidden baby monitor surveillance cameras that recorded evidence of previous alleged thefts. The son told police he had become suspicious of the CNA after he noticed that money belong to his mother was repeatedly missing from her purse. The son also told police that his mother suffers from dementia.

During the course of the investigation, police photographed and marked money to be placed in the elderly woman’s purse and later viewed surveillance tapes that allegedly showed the CNA taking the money. Police also allegedly found the woman in possession of the marked bills. According to police, the woman was working as a CNA for two different nursing homes at the time of her arrest. Both of her employers were beginning their own private investigations into other possible thefts of elderly patients. For more, read the story.
