Pasco nursing home coordinator accused of stealing from patient

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.

    TAMPA — There was a time, not long ago, when Wayne Capaz would go for a stroll at night and Christina Rodriguez would shop whenever she wanted. Michael Fuller would go to his night job as a line cook, not too worried about his wife at home.
