Fugitive arrested for elderly crimes in Tenn.

Associated Press • April 9, 2010 A U.S. Marshals in Memphis say a woman wanted for numerous violent crimes against the elderly in Tennessee and other states has been arrested in California. The U.S. Marshals Mid-South Fugitive Task Force said in a news release that Cassandra Henry and her husband Corry Henry were arrested Thursday in Claremont, Calif. Corry Henry was wanted for violating his federal supervised release. Cassandra Henry was wanted in multiple states for robbing and assaulting the elderly and nursing home patients. Authorities said she would enter their homes and take money, credit cards and other things and use the cards to purchase items at local stores. The Tunica County Sheriff's Department arrested Cassandra Henry in April 2009 at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Miss., but Deputy U.S. Marshal Lamont Ruffin said she violated her bond conditions and they have been looking for her ever since.
