WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A home health care worker is now wanted for stealing from an elderly patient.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office is looking for Orzugul “Ola” Mullojonova.

She is accused of taking more than $50,000 worth of jewelry and medication from an elderly victim in her care. 

Merilene Skaggs, 82, said they reached out to A Miracle Home Care to get an aide to assist with cleaning and other things. They sent Ola to the home, and she said at first everything was great.

"She'd clean the house and she did a good job," she said. "I got really attached to her and I really liked her and my husband liked her."

Ola came to their house twice a week for five months without any problems, then one day Skaggs noticed her second wedding set and dinner rings were missing from her jewelry box.

It was the first piece of jewelry her husband bought for her. While it's valued around $15,000, she said nothing can replace those memories.

"Trust somebody and they do you like that absolutely it hurts," Skaggs said. 

According to the sheriff's department, Ola was fired from A Miracle Home Care after Skaggs reported the theft.

Investigators said she moved on to another target in Loveland.

Nancy Forste said Ola pretended she was still working for the company when she entered her 92-year-old mother's home.

"She came in unannounced and just walked in and told my mom she had to use the bathroom and was in the bathroom a really long time," she said. 

But Forste said she never went to the bathroom. She said she went into her mom's bedroom and stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.

"It made her quite upset it's actually put her in the hospital with stress and at 92-year-old this is hard for her to take and we want this woman to be found," she said. 

Mullojonova is 32-years-old, 5’3" and 180 lbs.

Officials said she has ties to Middletown, but her whereabouts are unknown. 

If you have any information, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
