Woman accused in assisted living thefts in Ohio indicted


DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — A woman accused of stealing jewelry, watches and other items from residents of senior living facilities in two central Ohio counties over several years has been indicted on more than 100 charges.

Delaware County’s prosecutor says 55-year-old Susan Gwynne was indicted Wednesday on multiple counts, including burglary and theft. Prosecutor Carol O’Brien says Gwynne is accused of thefts from at least 31 residents at facilities in Franklin and Delaware counties.

An arrest warrant was issued for Gwynne. Court records don’t list an attorney for her.

The indictment alleges the thefts occurred from April 2008 through March 2016. Authorities say Gwynne apparently wore medical scrubs when entering the facilities.

Investigators say a search of Gwynne’s home found more than 3,000 items, mostly jewelry. Other missing items include cash and credit cards.
