Newark Police are searching for Terralyn Jackson-Whitehead, 27, who has prior addresses in Dover and New Castle, as well as Philadelphia, PA. Jackson-Whitehead is wanted for theft and unlawful use of a credit card from a patient for whom she was responsible for providing care.
In November, 2019, Newark Police were notified by another caregiver of a disabled Newark resident that there was suspicious activity on the victim’s credit card. The victim, who resides in the 400 block of Stamford Drive, confirmed that she did not authorize multiple transactions that were found on her credit card. Newark Police developed evidence that her caregiver at the time, Terralyn Jackson-Whitehead, used the victim’s credit card to make various purchases for the benefit of herself and not the victim.
In March, 2020, Newark Police obtained a warrant from Justice of the Peace Court #2 charging Terralyn Jackson-Whitehead with three counts each of Felony Theft from a Disabled Adult and Unlawful Use of a Payment Card.
Anyone with information about Jackson-Whitehead’s location is asked to contact Sgt. G. Micolucci at (302) 366-7100 x. 3412 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional methods for providing information to Newark Police can be found on our tips page, where reward information may also be available.
