A former manager at Fairview Health Services admitted today to stealing more than $122,000 in prosthetic limbs and other supplies and selling them on eBay.
Peter Stasica, a 52-year-old from Coon Rapids, worked as a manager at Fairview's orthotics and prosthetics department in 2011 when he began taking materials from the hospital, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He also solicited prosthetics no longer being used from patients, not disclosing his plan to put them up for bid.
Jeanne Cooney, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Minnesota, says this marks the first time she's seen anyone charged for dealing in stolen prosthetics. "This is a unique case." More »
