MIAMI – (CBS4) – A surgeon and post-graduate fellow at the University of Miami/ Jackson Memorial Hospital faces two grand theft charges after police say he stole medical equipment.

Miami Police arrested 38-year-old Nir Hus on Wednesday after a security guard confronted the surgeon when he saw him through a surveillance camera leaving with medical equipment.

Police said the security personnel confronted Hus as he left with medical equipment in hand. Hus told the guard that he needed the equipment to perform an upcoming surgery. However, a supervisor said Hus’ story was not true.

Hus bonded out of jail Thursday and is expected to return to court in mid-July for his arraignment.
