The experience of one Fayette County family serves as a cautionary tale for those bringing service workers into a home. A Fayette family recently had prescription medications stolen by a member of a cleaning crew.

Michelle Flournoy, 34, of Molena, was charged with theft by taking and possession of a Schedule II drug, according to Sheriff Barry Babb.

Joanie Winters, 54, of Milner, and Melissa Knight, 45, of Milner, were charged with theft by receiving and possession of a Schedule II drug, Babb said.

It was in July that residents of a home off Redwine Road reported to Fayette County deputies that prescription medications for an older family member had been stolen by members of a house cleaning crew, said Babb.

Deputies were told the cleaners arrive every two weeks, with the owners explaining that some of the medications of an older parent were unaccounted for when the crew was onsite, said Babb.

Babb said the homeowners provided deputies with a copy of a video showing one of the cleaning crew appearing to take medications from a pill bottle.

    Perhaps they’ll land a cleaning job at hotel-do-right. 🙂
