Fla. police looking for fake nurse stealing credit cards


Investigators in Lake and Volusia counties are searching for a woman who they say is pretending to be a nurse and stealing credit cards from real nurses.

So far, investigators believe she’s stolen from four different hospitals: Lake Hospital in Clermont, Florida Hospital in DeLand, Florida Hospital Fish Memorial and Halifax Health.

Surveillance photos show the woman dressed in scrubs to look like a nurse. Last month she was caught on camera strolling through a Lake County hospital, where police said she stole credit cards from an employee lounge. In one surveillance photo it appears the woman even has what looks like an employee badge on as she walks to the employee lounge.

Police said the woman used the stolen cards at stores like CVS Pharmacy. A surveillance camera in one store caught the woman strolling down the aisles. Investigators said she has an accomplice, who drives the get-away car.

The women were last seen leaving the South Lake Hospital in a white Dodge Intrepid. Police said that as of Saturday evening, they had no leads.
