ALBANY COUNTY – A Schenectady woman working as a home health aide stole and forged a client’s checks, state police said Wednesday.
In all, she is accused of taking $480 from the victim’s account, troopers said.
Jahmarah M. Brodhurst, 28, of Schenectady, was charged Sunday with two counts each of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, felonies, along with one misdemeanor petty larceny, state police said.
