CARE WORKER CHARGED FOR THEFT

CARE WORKER CHARGED FOR THEFT

 

November 23, 2020

The Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office along with the Adult Protective Services (APS) has been investigating an incident involving a care worker that had worked for a facility that provided services through a Medicaid Waiver program.

Investigators for the sheriff's office along with the APS, received a complaint that large sums of cash had been taken from a elderly's residence that the care worker was assigned to in Tishomingo County.  During the investigation, the care worker became the main suspect and was later questioned and also had a small portion of the alleged stolen cash with them at the time of being interviewed.  The care worker was then arrested and charged with the crime.

ALICIA NICHOLE HORNE, 33-year-old, white female of 77 CR 43 Dennis, Mississippi was officially charged with EXPLOITATION OF VULNERABLE PERSON.  HORNE's bond was set by the Tishomingo County Justice Court at five thousand dollars ($5,000).  Also, due to the situation, the Mississippi Department of Child Protective Services (MDCPS) was also brought in for a separate investigation.

This is still an ongoing investigation into this incident between the Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office and the Adult Protective Services. Further charges / arrests may be pending as this case progresses. This case will be presented to the next available Grand Jury.
