A New Bedford woman will be summonsed into court for allegedly stealing money from nursing home patients.

Police have sought complaints in New Bedford District Court, charging Sandra DosAnjos with nine counts of larceny.  The 38 year old DosAnjos is a former employee of the Oaks Nursing Home in the North End.

Officials noticed there was money missing from the account of an 88 year old woman, when she was transferred in May from the Oaks to another facility.

Police say a total of five patients may have been victimized, with a total amount of more than $8,000 unaccounted for.
