A nurse is behind bars after police discovered she stole a credit card from a patient at a Marshall County retirement home.
Alisha Capps, 26, of Lakeville faces multiple felony charges including forgery, theft, possession of a legend drug, and interfering with the delivery of a prescription drug by a health care provider.
Marshall County police were investigating a theft at Miller’s Merry Manor, a retirement home in Plymouth, after one of the residents reported a missing credit card.
Shortly thereafter, a trooper from the Indiana State Police tracked down the purchases made on the missing card to stores in the Plymouth area. They then traced the spending spree back to a nurse that worked at the Merry Manor.
Capps allegedly took the cards from the victim and made several purchases. But when police delved further into the incident, they discovered Capps was also in possession of prescription medicine that belonged to another one of the residents of Miller’s Merry Manor.
She was arrested and booked into the Marshall County Jail, no word yet on a trial.
