MOUNT CARMEL, Pa. — A home health aide in Northumberland County is accused of stealing from a woman under her care.

Jennifer Heiser, 47, was an aide for an agency in Mount Carmel.

She is charged with identity theft, forgery, theft, receiving stolen property, abuse of care, and related charges.

    What she did was horrible but I don’t think beating her is gonna knock any sense into her. She’s already gone too far she probably has been beaten and just doesn’t care. I think only jail can keep people safe from her behavior.

    SHAME ON THAT B&TCH!!! Our elderly have ENOUGH to deal with between deciding whether to buy medicines or eat cat food without their aides stealing from them. This woman needs a solid beating.
