A man from League City, Texas has been arrested for stealing drugs from ambulances for a period of months from August 2012 to January 2013. This man was a La Porte Emergency Medical Services captain, only 36 years old. According to reports, he is now facing multiple felony charges for his actions. He is being accused of tampering with a governmental record and diverting controlled substance for personal use and for others.
The complaint was originally filed in January of this year when the emergency medical crews who were in charge of restocking the ambulances realized that the medical vault door was left open with supplies missing, including a number of controlled substances. The reports claim that there were 163 bottles of Fentanyl and 50 bottles of morphine were absent from the supply vault, both of which are categorized as highly addictive narcotics.
Investigations were conducted after this last occurrence, and an EMS personnel opened one of the biohazard disposable containers and found there to be three used syringes as well as gauze covered in blood. Forensics tested the gauze and found the blood to be a match for the EMS captain. As a result of this investigation, the man has come forward and admitted his drug addiction and according to his wife admitted himself into a drug rehab facility to receive the treatment he needs.
