Florida Man Steals Operating Table From Hospital

In a daring daytime heist, a man walked into a Florida hospital and wheeled out a $48,000 operating room table, according to police who Saturday arrested a suspect on burglary and grand theft charges.

Via The Smoking Gun:

Investigators allege that Lance Sayre, 52, entered Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater last Sunday afternoon and went to “the secured area of the Operating Room.”

Once inside, Sayre “took custody of a Berchtold Operating Bed valued at $47,945.97” and wheeled it to the hospital’s loading dock, where he loaded the bed into the back of a white van.

Cops reported that the defendant was “captured on video.” An arrest affidavit does not indicate whether police recovered the stolen surgical table.

Seen above in a mug shot from a prior arrest, Sayre was arrested Saturday, six days after the July 5 operating room incursion at the 687-bed hospital. He was charged with burglary and grand theft, both felonies, and was released from custody after posting $15,000 bond.

According to his LinkedIn page, Sayre, a Tampa resident, has worked as a “master field service technician” in the “medical devices” field. An arrest affidavit lists Sayre as self-employed.
