Caregiver accused of stealing from paralyzed patient

A handicapped man told police his in-home caregiver stole nearly $6,000 and medication from him, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

A little after 3 p.m. Sunday, police were called to the first block of Fister Court where a 36-year-old quadriplegic told them his nurse and three friends had taken his safe from his bedroom closet with $5,700 in it, and medications from his backpack, while he was in the bathroom.

The report said he did not realize anything was missing until the next day.
