LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Federal prosecutors have charged a woman who worked as a school nurse in Searcy with fraud and identity theft for allegedly using information from legitimate nurses to get and keep her job.
Authorities announced Thursday that 58-year-old Susan Elaine Boyce of Pleasant Plains faces a seven-count indictment. She's charged with five counts of wire fraud and one count each of identity theft and misuse of a Social Security number.
Last month, Boyce missed a separate court appearance in Searcy to answer a misdemeanor charge of practicing nursing without a license.
Boyce had worked as a nurse for the district for five years under the name of Suzanne Pitts. She also went by Suzanne Elaina Johnson.
Boyce has not been arrested and authorities say they are looking for her.
