Nursing Home Employee Arrested For Stealing over $100,000.00 From Residents

A former nursing home employee was arrested today for the theft of $115,734 from the health and rehabilitation center where the 32-year-old man worked as the bookkeeper.  He was arrested at his home by agents of the Attorney General Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Sheriff’s Department.

The man is charged with first-degree theft of property, a class B felony that is punishable by two to 20 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $30,000. He is currently being held in county jail on a $30,000 bond.

The case was investigated by two special agents of the State Medicaid Fraud Unit after management at the nursing home reported the matter. The case is being prosecuted by the Assistant Attorney General, who also serves as the director of the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

The Attorney General praised the diligence of the facility’s management in discovering the theft and immediately returning the money to the residents’ accounts.  For more, read the story.
