Dade City retirement home nurse's aide accused of stealing from residents

DADE CITY — A retirement community nursing assistant was arrested Tuesday after police say she stole from residents.

Tashoni Brielle Cheatum, 30, was working as a certified nursing assistant at The Edwinola Retirement Community during the crimes.

On July 31, she took an ATM card from a 96-year-old woman and used it to withdraw $300 from the woman's bank, a Dade City Police report states.

Then on Sept, 15, Cheatum went into an 86-year-old resident's room and struck up conversation. When the resident went to use the restroom, Cheatum plucked $500 from the woman's purse, the report states.

Cheatum, of the 7500 block of Merchantville Circle in Zephyrhills, was arrested on two counts of grand theft from a victim over 65 years old. She remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Wednesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
