Thief takes barrels of old X-rays from Carle Clinic

Mary Schenk reports:

Urbana police believe that the thief who made off with hundreds of old Carle Clinic X-rays intended for recycling was intent on their silver value, not their informational value.

On Jan. 13, a man who is believed to have done the same thing at other hospitals in Illinois showed up at the clinic’s storage facility on Killarney Drive and picked up 1,300 packets, according to Sgt. Dan Morgan of the Urbana police department.

Carle Clinic spokeswoman Jennifer Hendricks said letters will be sent to those patients affected by the theft informing them of what happened. The X-rays were from 2005 and earlier, she said.
