Former Cop, Now Caregiver, Charged With Stealing $50,000 From Patient

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A former Pennsylvania police officer and paramedic who now works as an in-home health care aide has been charged with stealing nearly $50,000 from an elderly patient.

Forty-eight-year-old Beverly Kegley faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 26 on dozens of theft and credit card fraud charges filed Tuesday.

West Hills Regional police say the Conemaugh woman stole the money by overcharging her patient more than $21,000 for health care services since April 2015, and about $28,000 more by using the woman’s automatic teller machine and credit cards without her permission. Among other things, police say Kegley paid for her family’s vacation to Ocean City, Maryland with the victim’s credit card.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Kegley, who previously worked as an officer in Susquehanna Township. She doesn’t have a listed phone.
