The investigation was conducted by police detectives from Edwardsville, Belleville, Swansea and the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Luke J. Weissler. As part of her sentence, Rose was ordered to pay $9,865 in restitution.
McKinney allegedly used victims’ identities and information to withdraw money from ATMs, deposit fraudulent checks and purchase a car online for more $28,000. In 2018, Rose worked for CareLink Home Health and went into the homes of elderly patients as their hired caretaker. While in their homes, she stole Social Security numbers and other personal information and passed it on to her co-defendant, Ashley McKinney.
There is an outstanding warrant for McKinney’s arrest in the case. Erica S. Rose, 31, of East St. Louis, Illinois, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud and aggravated identity theft in November. She also received two years of court supervision after her release.
