A Lincoln man was caught attempting to steal thousands of dollars worth of medicine from a hospital.
Police say 27–year–old Justin Caruthers pried open a medicine dispensing machine at Bryan West last week, causing almost $60,000 worth in damage.
They say he did the same thing earlier this month at St. E's, but that time he got away with $400 worth of prescription pills.
He was cited and lodged for burglary, possession of burglars tools, possession of a controlled substance, criminal mischief and larceny.
This is a developing story, Channel 8's Jenn Schanz is reaching out to both hospitals for more information.
