Fox4KC reported the arrest of nursing home employee Angela Kreps who is accused of stealing thousands from a cancer victim. Kreps was director of social services at the Maple Wood Care Center. Kreps used her position at the center to gain the victim’s trust. She allegedly used the money for things like tanning, gasoline and groceries.
“Court records say in 2014 and 2015, Kreps used Wiley’s debit card to spend more than $3,000 without Wiley’s permission. Police reports list nearly 50 “illegal transactions” at places like Quik Trip, Hobby Lobby, and Dollar tree. Investigators say Kreps also used Wiley’s money at her own doctor’s office and to renew her tanning membership at Venetian Tan.”
Court records say Kreps also set up a Facebook page in the victim’s name and signed up for online banking — both without Wiley’s permission. Kreps quit her position at the center when the investigation started, according to court documents.
