Except there was one thing missing: his credit card.
The victim checked his account and noticed his card was used May 10 at a QuikTrip on State Bridge Road in Alpharetta, according to the report. He was still in the hospital at the time. The victim canceled his other cards.
Jones has since been fired from his contracted security position, Channel 2 Action News reported. He was hired in September and police fear there are more victims.
“If you were staying at the hospital during the period that person was employed there, definitely check your credit card statements or accounts and see if there are any questionable charges on there,” Roswell police Officer Lisa Holland told Channel 2..
In a statement released Thursday, Wellstar North Fulton Hospital officials said they perform background checks on everyone hired and apologized to the victim.
“This type of behavior is not reflective of core values and standards we set for our thousands of employees,” read the statement. “We are cooperating with the police on the investigation and are working to establish some additional policies and procedures to prevent this type of incident from occurring in the future."
Holland said the crime wasn’t worth it in the end: “For $20 worth of gas, this person was charged with three felony charges.”
Police say they pulled security footage from a QT where someone used the card and confirmed the hospitals' security guard had stolen it.
