Second arrest over hospital thefts

5:58 am on 20 January 2010

The police have made their second arrest in two weeks in connection with a number of thefts at Waikato Hospital last year.

A member of the public was arrested after officers found a hospital swipe card and a set of keys at his home.

A security guard aged 20, who worked for the hospital, was charged last week after he admitted stealing a number of cell phones there.

He was to appear in the Huntly District Court on Tuesday.

Waikato District Health Board says it expects further arrests to be made.
