Orlando Police have asked the public to help them find the person or persons that stole $500,000 worth of medical lab equipment from a Florida hospital at the beginning of the month. The burgerly wasn’t reported until a few days later after a truck with a trailer pulled up the building and left with the equipment.
The reason police are concerned is because the device was used is contaminated with hazardous materials that will eat away human skin. Police think the equipment was stolen so it could be taken to a recycling center, increasing the concern of how many people could be exposed to the dangerous substances. One of the machines looks like a copier and the others is a slide stainer.
Police are asking anyone with information or friends with skin falling off of their bodies, to call.
