Woman accused of stealing purse from nursing home

Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a woman for allegedly stealing a purse at Parkview Care Center on Saturday, November 11.

Parkview Care Center is located at N Saint Joseph Ave.

One of the employees there reported that she left a purse at the nurse's stations and when she returned 30 minutes later, her purse was missing.

A manager at the center showed security cameras to authorities investigating the case.

From the footage, authorities were able to identify a subject in the video as Monna Gail Alvey.

Alvey allegedly could be seen reaching into the nurse's area and removing a large item which appeared to the missing purse. A male subject was allegedly next to Alvey at this time.

After this, authorities said Alvey and the male subject walked into a patient's room, asked for a trash bag from the staff, and left the facility. 

Authorities said Alvey initially denied stealing the purse – stating that she was only visiting. However, authorities said she later admitted to seeing it unattended and stealing it.

She allegedly said she was at Parkview Care Center with her husband, Walter William Alvey Jr.

She allegedly told authorities that when they got home, she gave the purse to Walter and told him to hide it.

Monna Alvey was arrested and charged with theft.

She was sent to the Vanderburgh County Jail.
