Worker Charged with Stealing $140K from Rehab Center Residents

A former employee of a long-term care center in Sterling has been charged with stealing more than $140,000 from two residents at the facility.

Alvoid W. Washington, 35, of Laurel, MD, was a social services director at Potomac Falls Health and Rehab Center and has been charged with three counts of obtaining money by false pretenses, two counts of financial exploitation of incapacitated persons, and forgery.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Washington used checks and check cards from the two victims, both of whom are now deceased. He also fraudulently obtained power of attorney from one of the victims.

The thefts occurred between November 2017 and April 2018. The initial case was reported to the Sheriff’s Office’s Financial Crimes Unit in March. During that investigation, a second victim was discovered.

Washington was charged in August and additional warrants were served on him on Monday, in connection with the second victim.

Washington is free on $2,500 bond pending trial.
