Caretaker stole jewelry from elderly – BSO believes there are more victims

Moira Sullivan

By, Broward County, July 12,2015 – When she was supposed to be caring for two women in their late 90s, Moira Sullivan was pocketing their jewelry – necklaces, broaches, a bracelet and a watch – worth tens of thousands of dollars.

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives say Sullivan pawned their valuables, but both victims are missing other items. They say for some time Sullivan has earned her living working for elderly people, including an unidentified man in Sea Ranch Lakes, so detectives are concerned there may be other victims. They know that after stealing the jewelry from the 97-year-old victim, Sullivan pretended to be the owner of the items and pawned a broach in February, a necklace in March and another broach in April. She did the same three times in June, stealing and pawning a bracelet, watch and necklace from her 96-year-old victim.

BSO detectives arrested Sullivan July 8. She faces multiple charges including stealing from someone 65 or older, dealing in stolen property and fraud.

Anyone with additional information about Sullivan is asked to contact BSO Detective Tim Bush at (954) 786-4211 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at
