A home health aide is facing charges after she allegedly stole $1,450 from a local victim, police say.

New York State Police received a complaint of possible fraud involving 34-year-old Shamecca M. Allah, a home health care aide for Community Home Health Care in Poughkeepsie, on Friday, March 15.

Upon further investigation, police determined that Allah, a Poughkeepsie resident, fraudulently charged the victim for services totaling $1,450 while simultaneously submitting hours to Community Home Health Care in an attempt to bill the victim’s health insurance carrier for the same services.

Allah was arrested and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a Class E felony. She was released on an appearance ticket and is scheduled to return to the town of Pleasant Valley Court on Thursday, March 21.

Anybody who believes that they may be a victim of fraudulent billing by Allah or Community Home Health Care is urged to contact New York State Police Investigator Melilli at (845) 677-7300.
