Assisted living aide charged with exploiting elderly person

Cianna Tynece Moore (Davidson County Sheriff's Office )

An aide at an assisted living center in North Carolina is accused to taking personal information from a patient.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported Wednesday that 25-year-old Cianna Tynece Moore is charged with exploiting an elderly person.

Davidson County Sheriff's Office investigators were called to Grayson Creek Assisted Living in Welcome, and were told by the center's medical director that Moore had obtained personal information.

It's unclear how she received the information or if it was used for fraudulent purposes.

Moore was jailed on $3,500 bond. It's unclear if she has a lawyer.

We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
