A home health aide was arrested and charged with multiple counts of theft, forgery, computer related criminal activity, and money laundering after a two-month investigation revealed that she stole over $16,000.00 from her elderly patients. Arrested and charged on Tuesday, was 27-year-old Manchester resident, Keighla Bloschock.

This investigation began when one of Bloschock’s elderly patients attempted to pay her mortgage and learned that there was not enough money in her account to do so. Unbeknownst to the victim, Bloschock had nearly emptied her banks accounts, leaving her with just a few dollars. Det. Adam Emmons of the Manchester Township Police Department’s Investigations Bureau quickly headed up the investigation and expeditiously tracked a substantial quantity of the victim’s stolen funds to multiple bank accounts in Bloschock’s name. The accounts were subsequently seized and a considerable amount of stolen funds were set up to be returned to the victim.

During the initial investigation, Det. Emmons located a possible second victim while combing through bank records. This victim, also an elderly patient of Bloshchock’s, was contacted and confirmed that thousands of dollars had also been stolen from him. Again, Det. Emmons followed the money and located an additional account in Bloschock’s name. This account contained a considerable amount of money stolen from the second victim and was subsequently seized.

The investigation revealed that Bloshchock, while supposedly caring for these elderly patients, was stealing their personal checks and making them out to herself. In addition, she purchased extravagant items to include jewelry and high-end clothing, as well as attempting to pay off thousands of dollars of student loans.

Subsequent to her arrest, Bloschock was served with eighteen criminal charges and released pending future court proceedings.

Anyone having information regarding Bloschock or possibly having been victimized by her is encouraged to contact Detective Adam Emmons at 732-657-2009, ext. 4203.
