Deputies: Assisted living facility worker stole more than one thousand dollars from elderly patient

An assisted living facility worker was arrested Wednesday on charges she stole more than $1,500 from an elderly patient.

An arrest affidavit states Danielle Nichole Bone, 27 of Seminole stole a JC Penney credit card and Wells Fargo debit card from the patient multiple times between August and September and used it for purchases totalling $1,544.20.

According to the report the patient, who isn't identified by name, has hearing and vision loss, cannot drive and needs "assistance with some activities of daily living."

The patient was sent new versions of the cards when they believed they'd lost copies. Deputies said Bone overdrew the patient's bank account and caused it to be shut down.

Bone was charged with criminal use of personal information and grand theft from persons 65 years of age or older. She was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and was released on bond Wednesday night.
