NEW PORT RICHEY
Former deputy nabbed for nursing home theft
A former Pasco sheriff's jail deputy found herself held at the place she used to work. Kim E. Sullo, 47, was arrested Thursday on two dozen charges of dealing in stolen property. Sullo, who worked at the Pasco jail from 2002 until she resigned in 2005, is accused of stealing jewelry from patients at a Tarpon Springs nursing home, where she worked as a caretaker.
After pocketing necklaces, earrings, charms, bracelets and rings from the patients at Hope Enterprises nursing home, she pawned them in Pasco County.
She was arrested in Pinellas County on Jan. 12 on charges of scheme to defraud, grand theft and burglary. Sullo, of New Port Richey, was transferred to Pasco Thursday.
