Woman charged with posing as healthcare worker to steal from senior citizens in assisted living
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An Indianapolis woman is accused of posing as a healthcare worker at senior living communities to steal money, prescription drugs and jewelry from the residents.
Nickelle Rodgers gained access to four different facilities throughout May and June, according to a probable cause affidavit. Those facilities allegedly include Crestwood Village Senior Communities-East, Crestwood Village Senior Communities-West, Crestwood Village Senior Communities-South and Home Place Senior Retirement Community-West.
In some instances, victims say Rodgers conducted fraudulent health assessments, such as examining their prescription medications and physical examinations.
The victims also reported items missing after Rodgers had been in their apartments, including money, prescription drugs and jewelry.
Rodgers is now facing charged of burglary, theft, attempted burglary and corrupt business influence.
This isn’t the first time Rodgers has been facing charges for preying on senior citizens in assisted living facilities. She plead guilty and was convicted for similar charges in 2012 and 2013.
Investigators believe there may be additional victims. Anyone who believes he or she may have more information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Adult Protective Services Unit 8 at 317-327-1403.
