Nursing Home Office Manager Arrested for Stealing from 29 Patient Accounts

According to police, the former office manager of one nursing home was accused of stealing nearly $20,000 from at least 29 residents. The suspect, 25-years-old, was charged last weekend with third-degree grand theft and organized fraud. Bond has been set at $30,000.

The man left his job at the nursing home around the beginning of the year, according to his affidavit. In February, staff contacted police because a patient's family member noticed a suspicious transaction on the patient's account, the affidavit states. Staff compared records of several residents and found some checks had been forged, detectives said. According to police, the former office manager was accused of writing checks payable to himself from 29 patient accounts. For more, read the story.
