Elderly residents removed from personal care home

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Sixteen people have been removed from a house in south Jackson that was being used as a personal care facility.

Officials with the Mississippi Department of Health say they were acting on a complaint that residents were being locked in and refused visitors.

The Clarion-Ledger reports that the attorney general's office would not say whether the person who operated the home had been arrested.

Breisch Stallings, the owner of the home, says the home was being rented. He declined to release information about the tenants but said he did not know it was being used as a personal care home.

Health officials say 15 residents were moved to other facilities on Tuesday. They say one resident left the home before staff could place him elsewhere.
