A registered Elmont nurse was arrested in Great Neck on Tuesday for allegedly using a 58-year-old woman’s identity to steal $30,000, according to Nassau County Police Department officials.

Detectives from the county’s 6th squad reported that the 58-year-old victim noticed unauthorized withdrawals from her Chase Bank Accounts on April 1 and 2.  Preliminary reports showed that the unknown person accessed the accounts on multiple occasions throughout various locations.

A thorough investigation led officials to the home of 28-year-old Florencia Exinvil of Elmont, where she produced the unnamed victim’s debit card and removed approximately $30,000, officials said.

Exinvil, according to state records, has been registered as a licensed practical nurse since January 2015.

Officials said Exinvil was charged with first-degree identity theft, nine counts of fourth-degree grand larceny, and criminal possession of stolen property. Exinvil was scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday in Mineola.

Immediate efforts to reach officials for further comment and an update on Exinvil’s scheduled arraignment were unavailing.
