UPDATE: Victoria police identify paramedic equipment theft suspect

The medical equipment was taken on Aug. 6

Victoria police have identified the suspect who reportedly stole paramedic equipment earlier this month after sharing his photo with the public.

Police thanked the public on Thursday for helping to identify the suspect.

On Wednesday, a VicPD release said paramedics reported that a case of medical equipment was stolen as they were attending to a patient in the 500-block of Ellice Street on Aug. 6. The case was recovered, but some equipment was missing and VicPD said the cost of replacing the taken items is significant.
