From NBC Philadelphia: A traffic stop led to the discovery of property stolen from residents at a Delaware nursing home, according to investigators.
On Monday, at 12:45 a.m., a New Castle County Police officer was on patrol in the area of Skyline Drive and Mermaid Boulevard in Newark, Delaware. Suddenly police say he spotted a Ford Focus with fake registration. The officer stopped the car and spoke with the driver, later identified as Shakeana Sims, 25, of Newark, Delaware.
Police say a computer inquiry revealed Sims had several outstanding cases issued by the New Castle County Court of Common Pleas. After she was taken to county headquarters, police say they discovered she was in possession of a stolen watch, bank card and blank check. Upon further investigation, police say they learned the property belonged to two elderly residents whom Sims cared for as a nurse’s aide at the Kendal Crosslands Nursing Home in Kennett Square, Pa.
