FOUNTAIN VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — A 46-year-old man has been accused of stealing surgical equipment from Fountain Valley Regional Hospital.
Roy Chi Wing Lung, of Los Alamitos, was arrested Sunday and booked on suspicion of commercial burglary. He was released Monday after posting bail, according to jail records.
Although the thefts began May 19, the suspect was apprehended Sunday when an employee recognized him as the man police were searching for, said Fountain Valley police Lt. Ken Hounsley.
Authorities later found stolen equipment at Lung’s home.
“We’ve got a lot of property here, and we’re sorting through it,” Hounsley said.
