A warrant has been issued for a Central Ohio woman accused of stealing jewelry and other valuables from residents at senior living facilities in Franklin and Delaware counties. 

Authorities say 55 year old Susan Gwynne wore medical scrubs to enter senior living facilities in Franklin and Delaware counties where she stole jewelry, watches, cash and credit cards from residents.

Gwynne was indicted on 100 charges related to the thefts, including burglary.

Officials say the thefts occurred from April 2008 through March of this year.

Delaware County's prosecutor Carol O’Brien says Gwynne is accused of stealing from at least 31 residents at facilities in Franklin and Delaware counties.

Investigators say a search of Gwynne's home found more than 3,000 items, mostly jewelry.
