Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies are searching for a man who is suspected of stealing the wallet of an employee at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital’s gift shop Monday.
Security camera footage caught an image of the man walking out of the hospital off East Huron River Drive in Superior Township, deputies said in a news release. At 1:30 p.m., a man entered the gift shop and was later seen coming from the back office area. Sheriff’s deputies said employees at the shop were too busy to check to find out what he was doing.
