Home health care assistant arrested for stealing patient debit cards
BATON ROUGE - The Baton Rouge Police Department arrested 24-year-old Allison Taylor for stealing an elderly woman’s debit cards while being her home health care assistant.
The victim reported to BRPD that there were many unauthorized charges to her Chase Bank debit card and Louisiana Purchase debit card.
According to BRPD, the victim suffers from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and kidney disease which requires her 24-hour home health care assistance.
The victim suspected that Taylor took her debit cards.
BRPD went to one of the stores where the unauthorized transactions occurred to get surveillance video footage. BRPD compared Taylor's driver's license photo to the footage which matched.
BRPD also obtained a cell phone payment made with one of the victim’s cards to confirm that Taylor was in fact the suspect.
Taylor was arrested and charged with unauthorized use of an access card, theft and exploitation of the infirm.
