Former Ambulance Driver Admits Stealing Heart Monitors

A former ambulance driver who briefly worked at Children’s National Medical Center and the Washington Hospital Center in the District pleaded guilty Monday to stealing two expensive heart monitors out of ambulances and trying to sell them to a company in New York.

Kyle Walcott, 31, of Baltimore, was accused of stealing two Lifepak 12 Defibrillator/Monitors from parked ambulances at Children’s hospital and at a V Street, Northeast facility belonging to Lifestar Response, the company for which Walcott worked. Walcott worked for Lifestar for just more than two weeks in November 2008.
