LOWER MERION TWP., Pa. (AP) — Police say two men and a woman broke into a Philadelphia-area hospital and stole nearly a half-million dollars’ worth of colonoscopy instruments.
Authorities say the trio had access to a secured area of Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood, which is about 8 miles (13 kilometers) west of Philadelphia. The people walked out of the hospital with several colonoscopes with a value of $450,000.
Lower Merion Police are still searching for the suspects in Saturday morning’s theft.
Surveillance video shows the three driving up in a Jeep Wrangler and one man and one woman exit the vehicle. At some point, the third suspect joins them. Video also shows all three of them leaving with full backpacks.
