APOPKA, Fla. - An Apopka woman is facing charges after investigators said she posed as a home healthcare nurse to steal money from a patient.

According to reports, Sabrina McCall, 35, pawned thousands of dollars of the victim’s jewelry at a pawn shop, but when the victim’s mother caught on, reports said McCall bought some of the jewelry back and planted it in the victim’s home.

“She took a diamond ring, a diamond bracelet, a diamond pendant and she cashed a check for $340,” said the 85-year-old victim, who did not want to be identified.

Investigators said McCall is not licensed.

“She dressed in scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, giving the impression that she was a nurse,” the victim said.

Channel 9’s Renee Stoll went to McCall’s home to ask her about her arrest, but McCall quickly slammed the door.

The victim was only able to get a few pieces of jewelry back, but one item that she loved the most has not been seen again.

“A charm bracelet that I’ve had for 62 years, that my husband gave me, it’s the story of my life. I feel like she just snatched an album of my life,” the victim said.

McCall has been charged with theft, but it’s still unclear if she’ll also face charges for practicing without a license.
