SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) – The owner of two nursing homes in Upstate has been accused of exploiting vulnerable adults and breach of trust.

The Attorney General’s Office said Darryl Mast, owner of Oakridge Community Care Home # 1 and # 2 in Inman, was arrested Monday.

Mast is accused of stealing a social security check from a vulnerable adult in one of the homes and using the money for personal purchases, including buying a car, the state’s attorney said. The check was worth $ 66,110.

Officials also say Mast put a resident in one of the homes at work, “placing the victim at a significant risk of causing physical or mental harm to himself and other residents.”

On two occasions in 2021, the Attorney General says that Mast left residents without care or supervision. A study revealed that local law enforcement responded to Oakridge Community Care Home # 2 twice due to an imminent threat of harm to residents.

According to arrest warrants, body cam footage was used as part of the evidence to target him.

Mast is charged with 10 counts of neglect of a vulnerable adult and breach of trust.

DSS and DHEC coordinate the care for the residents in the care services.
