Phippsburg Home Health Nurse Accused of Stealing From Client 

Police say a home health nurse has been charged with stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of jewelry from a client’s Bath home. Stephanie Walker of Phippsburg was charged Tuesday with theft by unauthorized taking and receiving stolen property. Chief Michael Field says an investigation was launched in July when a resident reported the disappearance of the valuables at a time when a resident of the home was receiving home nursing care from a company that employed Walker. Police think Walker sold some of the stolen jewelry to a local gold and silver exchange company. Walker has been released on bail and is scheduled for arraignment Dec. 11.
