Clarification: Shirley Cyr was not employed by Live Free Home Health Care while working in the Meredith home where she is alleged to have stolen $12,000
A story that was published in our Thursday, Feb. 13 edition about the former director of the Inter-Lakes School District's food service department being the subject of a police investigation needs clarification because of background references made to his wife's alleged crimes.
Police say they originally searched the Moultonborough home of Joseph and Shirley Cyr looking for cash that Mrs. Cyr allegedly stole from a home where she was proving health care services. During that search they say they made a discovery related to Mr. Cyr that led them to obtain a second search warrant. To date no other information about Mr. Cyr has been made public and he has not been charged with a crime.
Mrs. Cyr is alleged to have stolen $12,000 from one Meredith home in August of last year and gold jewelry from a second Meredith home in December. In both cases, Mrs. Cyr was providing home health care services to the alleged victims.
In the second (December) instance, Mrs. Cyr was working as an employee of Live Free Home Health Care and owners of that company say she was terminated immediately upon their learning of the situation. The Board of Nursing, the Bureau of Elder and Adult Services and Meredith Police were also immediately notified.
In the first (August) instance, the alleged victim was not a client of Live Free Home Health Care and company officials say they had no knowledge of Mrs. Cyr's work in that home until they read about it in the newspaper.
