Authorities are looking for Jacqueline Anne Lumpkin, a certified nursing assistant at an Alabama Nursing Home, who is accused of stealing an elderly resident’s identity to fraudulently buy goods and services valued at more than $5,000. Warrants for Lumpkin’s arrest were issued on December 4, 2008 and she is being charged with: elder abuse / neglect, financial exploitation, identity theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. Each count caries a $15,000 bond. Authorities are still attempting to learn if there are more residents that Ms. Lumpkin has taken advantage of.
