Rutledge Announces Two Women Arrested by Medicaid Fraud Control Unit

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced the arrest of an Izard County woman and a Bradley County woman by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

Anna Moore, 59, of Melbourne, turned herself in to the Izard County Sheriff’s Office on one count of Medicaid fraud. She is accused of marrying the Medicaid recipient she was providing services to and continuing to submit billing documents for her services, totaling more than $10,000 for services she was not eligible to provide due to the marriage, a Class B felony. Moore was released after posting bond and is scheduled to appear in Pulaski County District Court in September.

This case was referred to the Attorney General’s office by the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General.

Deshundra Thomas, 27, of Wilmar, turned herself in to the Warren Police Department on one count of failure to report adult or long-term care facility resident maltreatment, a Class B misdemeanor. She observed another employee abuse a resident and failed to report it to the facility. Thomas was released after posting bond and is waiting on a court date to be set in Drew County District Court.
