The Huntingburg Police Department received a report of a man carrying a black trash bag who was looking into vehicles parked outside an antique store in the 1800 block of North Main Street.

Officers arrived and made contact with Stanley R. Kepley III, 28, 606 S. Main St., who allegedly gave police consent to search his trash bag.

Police said Kepley was found to be in possession of three boxes of rubber gloves, an oxygen mask, safety glasses, several sealed packages of cotton swabs and some folded, whitee blankets.

Upon questioning, police said Kepley admitted to having recently been a patient at Memorial Hospital’s Urgent Care building at 507 E. 19th St. and to have taken the items from drawers and cabinets before walking out of the facility.

Authorities booked Kepley into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:06 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of theft.
