MANCHESTER – An employee at an assisted living facility was charged with stealing money and jewelry from residents, police said.
Tina Sloan, 48, of Manchester was arrested and charged with multiple counts of theft.
The three-month investigation began on Sept. 25, police said, after they responded to a theft at The Haven at Silverwoods on Route 37. Officers took reports from residents who stated that money and jewelry had been stolen from their apartments.
Detective David Fusaro researched the stolen items at pawn shops, finding sales that matched the description of the jewelry stolen. This created a suspect list, which was cross referenced with a list of employees at The Haven at Silverwoods.
It was determined that Sloan had completed 59 pawn transactions during 2017 and had sold more than 100 pieces of jewelry. Fusaro then met with each resident of the facility to try to identify any additional stolen items or victims who had not yet come forward. As it turns out, this yielded several more victims.
Given the nature of the crimes, it is believed that there might be more victims who have not yet been identified. Anyone who resided in The Haven at Silverwoods during 2017, who believes they might have had items stolen, is urged to contact Detective Fusaro at 732-657-2009 ext. 4208.
