A Wading River home health aide was arrested last month for stealing more than $1,000 from an elderly man she was hired to care for, Southampton Town police said.

Tara Clark, 35, was hired by the victim’s family to care for the Eastport man, police said.

Ms. Clark used the victim’s personal bank card and bank account to get money to pay for “personal expenditures,” such as trips to a tattoo parlor and a nail salon, a police investigation revealed.

Ms. Clark was arrested Oct. 26 and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, police said.

Arraignment information for the defendant was not immediately available.
