ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – A grand jury indicted a local nurse’s assistant for allegedly scheming to defraud elderly patients in her care of more than $30,000, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Richard Callahan said Friday.

According to the indictment, 27-year-old De’Janay Noldon worked as a certified nurse’s assistant caregiver with SHC, a senior home health care company.

Prosecutors said Noldon assumed the identity of one victim to obtain a credit card and used two other credit cards belonging to that same victim to make several personal purchases, as well as paying bills and obtaining cash advances.

Noldon also allegedly accessed bank accounts belonging to all three of the victims.

Noldon faces multiple charges, including: mail fraud, bank fraud, identity theft, and Social Security fraud.

Anyone who believes they may have been a victim of this scheme is asked to contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 314-539-9360.
