Cleveland.com reported that a former nursing home worker was indicted Oct. 20 after a detective investigating thefts from elderly residents found her using one of the stolen credit cards at a Cleveland bingo parlor.  Gwendolyn Brice faces multiple charges including identity theft, after an officer showed her photo to a bingo worker on Oct. 12, who told him she was in the building — then gave him the name on the stolen credit card she had used that night to purchase $140 worth of bingo cards and supplies that night.

The detective had already noticed the suspect standing in line purchasing materials and knew it was the name of one of what may be multiple victims, as the investigation continues after her Oct. 13 arrest and subsequent grand jury indictment. Brice had access to the residents’ rooms and was employed at Hamlet Hills nursing home for 10 months.
