Mountain House Assisted Living Facility arrests PDF Print

Owners of Mountain House Assisted Living Facility are “heartbroken” over the actions of several former employees.

An investigation resulted in the arrests of Wanda Hartley, Tiffany Darnell, Felicia Glenn and Heather Darnell on one count each of obtaining property by false pretenses. The SBI alleges the former employees received extra wages for time they did not work. The allegations get worse, however.

Former director Sherry Dancy and her husband, Leroy Dancy, have also been issued charges. Sherry Dancy is alleged to have allowed the employees to receive the extra wages, and worse still, to have obtained property and money from Mountain House residents under false pretenses. She is also charged with practicing law without a license. Bureau investigators allege Dancy prepared Power of Attorney and Last Will and Testament papers that made herself and husband Leroy the recipients of residents’ property.

The Dancys could not be reached for comment.

Mountain House Assisted Living Facility is in Wilkesboro and is owned by Sanford-based Davis, Davis & Dodson LLC. The parent company is actively cooperating with Wilkes County officials in the ongoing investigation.
