INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis woman was charged this week for allegedly posing as a home healthcare worker at senior living communities in order to steal money, drugs and jewelry.

Nickelle Rodgers faces numerous charges, including 10 counts of burglary and five counts of theft.

The charges stem from Rodgers allegedly posing as a healthcare worker to gain unauthorized entry into residential apartments at four senior living communities.

In some instances, Rodgers allegedly conducted fraudulent healthcare assessment, such as examining the residents' prescription medications and physical exams.

Investigators believe there may be additional victims. Anyone who believes they may have more information regarding this case is asked to contact Adult Protective Services at 317-327-1403.
