Former hospital employee on the run after stealing from patient

A former certified nursing aide at Penrose-St. Francis Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colo., is on the run from investigators, according to a KKTV news report.  

David Aldrich, the former employee, is accused of stealing a patient's credit card and racking up hundreds of dollars in charges. The incident allegedly occurred last summer.

Mr. Aldrich no longer works at Penrose-St. Francis and his nursing license was revoked in April, according to the report.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is unable to locate Mr. Aldrich. He is due to appear in court in late August for a hearing on his three pending DUI charges.
