MESA, Ariz. (AP) — A paramedic has been charged with theft after being accused of pocketing a patient's Rolex watch during an ambulance ride to a hospital, authorities said Friday.
Jason Edward Alexander, a Rural/Metro ambulance employee, was arrested after the victim's son saw the watch on eBay and notified authorities.
The man died on Oct. 8 after Alexander helped transport him to the hospital in Mesa on Sept. 21. The family couldn't find his watch.
Alexander acknowledged taking the watch because he owed money to his parents, Mesa police spokesman Esteban Flores said.
After trying to sell it on eBay, Alexander sold it for $1,400 to a friend who did not know it had been stolen, police said.
The friend was working with authorities to return the watch to the family.
Alexander faces one count each of theft and trafficking in stolen property. He is due in court Wednesday. It was unclear if he has an attorney.
John Karolzak, a Rural/Metro spokesman, said Alexander is on unpaid administrative leave. He was hired about a year ago after undergoing a background check, Karolzak said, adding that the company had no plans to review any of its operations.
"We consider this incident an anomaly and acted definitively upon notification," he said.
