(KMOV) -- A Metro-East woman has been charged with identity theft involving patients at a nursing home.
Cynthia Hill, 37, of Belleville has been charged with two counts of aggravated identity theft.
Investigators say Hill had three victims – a 54-year-old and a 61-year-old who were living in a Collinsville nursing home and a 76-year-old victim.
The 54-year-old victim realized the scam when trying to open an account with Ameren IP. The victim was unable to open the account because of an outstanding balance of over $1,300.

While investigating the first two victims’ cases, authorities discovered the 76-year-old victim.
