Former Heritage Woods employee faces more theft charges

BATAVIA – A former employee at Heritage Woods of Batavia assisted-living community faces more charges after being charged in December with stealing a check from a resident and making a $1,000 withdrawal from the woman’s bank Nov. 20.

Teejana S. Perry, 19, of the 29W400 block of Hawthorne Lane, Warrenville, has been charged with 13 counts of financial exploitation of an elderly person, forgery and theft after more victims or their families notified police. Authorities Wednesday authorized the charges.

“There’s four total victims,” Batavia Police Detective Kevin Bretz said. “We’re hoping there are no new victims.”

The charges stem from offenses that occurred Nov. 25. Bretz urged anyone who feels they were victimized by Perry to call the Batavia Police Department at 630-879-2840.

Perry is charged with taking more than $3,000, Bretz said. She faces a total of 17 charges.

Heritage Woods administrator Marcy LoDolce said Perry was fired but did not indicate when that was. She said Perry passed background checks before she was hired.

“She did not have a criminal record,” LoDolce said. “We don’t hire known felons.”

Heritage Woods of Batavia is at 1079 E. Wilson St., on the city’s east side.
