Mifflinburg nurse faces trial in fraud case

CATAWISSA — A Mifflinburg woman who worked as a licensed practical nurse will face court action for allegedly charging $3,001 on a credit card stolen from a purse at a Danville area nursing home.

Stacy Lynne Rivera, 40, of 207 Maple St., waived her right to a preliminary hearing Monday before District Judge Craig Long. She is charged with access device fraud, identity theft and theft for an alleged spending spree in Union and Snyder counties. Rivera remains free on $10,000 unsecured bail, according to Long’s office.

Police said Rivera stole the card from the purse of Judith Trayer, of Main Township, while working at Grandview Health Homes in Mahoning Township.

 Mahoning Township and Main Township police filed the charges.

Police said Trayer’s card was in her purse in the west wing Dec. 18. Rivera had access to it while working at the nursing home through Greater Health Care Resources, which provides flex and temporary staff to medical facilities.

RN Supervisor Karen Carroll told police Rivera was wearing blue scrubs and a jacket when she left work that day. Police said the description matched the clothing of the person caught on camera at Giant Foods and Best Buy in Snyder County.

Police said Trayer’s purse was in the med room, which is secured. Only charge nurses or the supervising nurse on duty have keys and access.

Trayer told police she discovered her M-C Federal Credit Union card missing later in the day Dec. 18. On Dec. 20, she contacted the credit union and found her account was overdrawn.

Eight separate purchases were made totaling $3,001, police said.

They included $266 at Giant Foods, an additional $400 at Giant Foods, $964 at Best Buy, $447 at Bon-Ton and $200 at Hollister, all in Snyder County, and $620 at Weis Markets, $63 at CVS and $36 at Shell Oil, all in Mifflinburg.
