Brookline Police report arresting a nursing assistant at CareOne Brookline on charges she repeatedly used a resident's credit card to buy groceries, meals and other stuff for herself.
Police say detectives began an investigation in June after a family member asked the facility to look into unusual charges on the resident's statement.
Police say Katia Boutin, 47, of Quincy, used the resident's card for purchases at CVS, Trader Joe's and Village Fare Pizza in Brookline and the Stop and Shop in Quincy and the Ocean State Job Lot in Brockton, between April 28 and May 29.
Police arrested Boutin at CareOne yesterday on one count of larceny from a building, three counts of receiving a stolen credit card and 24 counts of credit-card fraud under $1,200. Police say she could face additional charges after detectives finish investigating what might be similar unusual bills at the nursing home.
