MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A former assisted living facility worker is accused of stealing the identity of a 92-year-old woman to buy jewelry online.

According to the criminal complaint, the son of the woman noticed unusual charges from a jewelry store on her credit card statement.

Burnsville police say they were able to track the jewelry purchase to Alonzo Crowder, a man who had been employed at the assisted living facility the woman resided in.

While searching his apartment officers say they also found the personal information for 15 other people, as well as drug paraphernalia.

Crowder no longer works at the nursing facility.

He faces identity theft charges and could face up to 20 years in prison.
