A security personnel at a New Jersey healthcare facility has been implicated of taking money and fashion jewelry from 3 clients– consisting of one who had actually passed away of the coronavirus, according to a report.

Danny Rivera, 40, of Jersey City, who operates at the Hudson Regional Medical Facility in Secaucus, was charged with three counts of theft and one count of unlawful ownership of a weapon, NJ.com reported

Secaucus Police Chief Dennis Miller stated more than $500 in money and more than $10,000 in fashion jewelry had been swiped in the 3 events, which took place on April 28, May 29 and July 15, according to the outlet.

Authorities recovered some of the proceeds from the thefts in Rivera’s home, Miller stated.

” We are fully working together with authorities on the current arrest of a former member of our security personnel,” health center spokesperson Ron Simoncini told NJ.com.

” Out of regard for the examination, we can not comment further other than to state that for a worker to steal from patients under our care insults every principle of Hudson Regional Hospital’s existence and we deeply regret the occurrence,” he added.
