Arrest Made In Gwinnett County Nursing Home Identity Thefts

Buford, GA
Police have arrested Iniabel Ferrer at her home in Buford after someone reported that Ferrer and Jose Luis Cuiro had approached them and asked that they use their computer skills to steal money from the bank accounts of elderly Alzheimer's patients at a Gwinnett County nursing home.

Ferrer, 36, was arrested and charged with six felony counts of Exploitation of a Disabled Adult and six felony counts of Financial Indentity Fraud, when police stopped her vehicle as she and Cuiro were leaving their residence and found in their possession documents containing the medical and financial records of several nursing home patients. An arrest warrant was also issued for the 44 year old Cuiro.

The pair had stolen financial and medical records from six residents of a nursing home where Ferrer worked in Buford and intended to use that information to remove funds from the bank accounts of these elderly victims. Ferrer is being held under a $68,400 bond.
