Theft charges after client’s rings pawned
A worker at a Woodbury nursing home was charged with felony theft for pawning a resident’s wedding rings in December, according to an Office of Health Facilities Complaints report last month.
The resident of Woodbury Health Care Center had gone to the dining room to do some late-night reading. The next morning she found examination gloves on her bed and noticed that her rings, which she kept in a bag, were missing.
The facility’s video footage showed a worker entering the resident’s room while the resident was in the dining room.
Police searched pawnshops and found that the day after the theft the worker was shown on video pawning the rings, appraised at $4,100, for $403.
The worker failed to appear for a subpoena last month.
