Vero Beach, FL (May 16, 2019) – Police have arrested a 28-year-old medical technician after she was accused of stealing personal items from victims at a living facility where she worked.
The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office stated that six burglaries took place in the living facility known as the Isles of Vero at 1700 Waterford Drive in Vero Beach. Various victims came forward and claimed that their cash, credit cards, jewelry, and other expensive items were stolen from them even though their apartments were locked.
A detective was able to locate some of the jewelry at local pawn shops in the area. He then discovered that the suspect was Chelsea Langford, a medical technician who was employed at the Isles of Vero. Langford came forward and confessed that she had stolen and pawned the items. She has since been arrested on charges of two counts of dealing in stolen property and other related charges.
Police say that Langford is also a person of interest in other burglaries that happened in that same assisted living facility.
