The sheriff’s department has arrested a Murfreesboro woman and charged her with stealing more than $100,000 and a vehicle from a patient in a Smithville nursing home.Robin Ann Baquedano, 31, has been charged with one count of theft of property over $10,000 and one count of theft of property over $60,000 in the case.According to Sheriff Patrick Ray, a deputy was dispatched to a McMinnville Highway home on Jan 15 to investigate a report of suspicious persons driving a Ford Fiesta belonging to a patient at NHC Healthcare Center in Smithville.The officer reportedly questioned Baquedano and another person about the vehicle, which was apparently not present at the residence. Baquedano reportedly told the lawman that she did not know where the car was, but believed that her mother had it. The deputy then went to NHC and spoke with the victim, who reportedly told him that no one should be driving her vehicle.Then, on Feb. 4, Rutherford County police allegedly found Baquedano driving the victim's car in Murfreesboro.
