A trail of stolen medical equipment led police to a Penn Hills man accused of taking $486.01 worth of items from a doctor's office.

Jesse King Hershelman, 32, of 2819 Main St., is accused of wandering the halls of Partners in Health on Orchard Drive and taking several items from the practice when he took his mother to an appointment.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, workers said Hershelman was asked multiple times to sit in the waiting room on Jan. 8, but he was seen and heard in examination rooms and storage closets.

When police arrived, a “trail of ear probes” was found on the sidewalk leading to Hershelman's car. Other items were seen in his vehicle.

Police said Hershelman stole eye drops, mouth and ear thermometers, mouth probe covers, ear probe covers, a flashlight and adhesive bandages. Police also found seven rolls of toilet paper wedged under the vehicle seats.

Hershelman is charged with theft and receiving stolen property before District Judge Helen Kistler. A summons has been issued and a preliminary hearing is scheduled on Feb. 19.
