(KMOV) – Police are looking for a man who used a fake identity to check into Missouri Baptist Medical Center, then stole electronics from his hospital roommate.

Police say on Sept. 20 the suspect checked into the hospital on N. Ballas Rd. using the name Vonte Lewis and was taken to a room.

Authorities say while his roommate was undergoing tests he pulled the IV from his room and stole the victim’s iPhone and iPod Nano.

He then left the hospital without paying.

Police say they believe the suspect has used a fake identity at other area hospitals. They hope surveillance pictures will help them identify.

Anyone with information on the man is asked to call Det. Lt. Kranz with the Town and Country Police Department at 314-587-2860.
