FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Fort Wayne Police Department is asking for help identifying a suspect in a hospital theft.
Police released surveillance images of a man they believe was involved in stealing two 50″ LG Televisions, worth over $700 each, from the cafeteria of the St. Joe Hospital.
The two TVs were stolen late on the night of Jan. 31, 2014, according to the police report. A new culinary management company spent the day setting everything up as they began to take over the cafeteria and food services for the company.
The vice president of Metz Culinary Management told police he had seen the suspect found on surveillance several times throughout the day and saw him take packets of ketchup and mustard from the condiment area.
According to the police report, the cafeteria was closed off at the time of the theft and the suspect would have had to climb over a locked gate to get one of the TVs. The second TV was in the vending area, which was still open.
The suspect could be seen walking down the hall with a linen cart that had both TVs in it, according to the police report.
Anyone with information on the suspect pictured is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (260) 436-STOP or the police non- emergency number (260) 427-1222.
