HOLIDAY — A nursing home administrator at Sunshine Christian Homes is accused of stealing $1,403 from an 88-year-old patient.
Amna G. Ahmovic, 34, of Port Richey, was arrested Monday and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and exploitation of the elderly. She was described as a resident care coordinator in a previous Times feature about a 105-year-old patient at the Holiday facility.
The home, which has a website saying it provides "quality care in a Christian environment," declined to comment Tuesday on Ahmovic's charges.
Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, said Ahmovic used the victim's debit card and banking information at Rent-A-Center, DriveTime Credit Corporation, Verizon Wireless and Match.com. Ahmovic told investigators the victim gave her the debit card — but she admitted "she took advantage of the victim," who suffers from memory loss, a report states. The transactions happened between November and January, authorities say.
Ahmovic is listed as unemployed on her arrest report. She remained Tuesday at the Pasco jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
