Wis. medic charged with drug thefts
After officials noticed some medication missing, a video camera was used to catch another theft
BARABOO, Wis. — Prosecutors say a Baraboo ambulance worker stole pain medication from a supply closet and switched it out with other substances to cover his tracks.
The Sauk County District Attorney’s Office filed misdemeanor theft and felony drug possession charges Thursday against 39-year-old Jason M. Ramker, a part-time paramedic with the Baraboo District Ambulance Service.
According to court documents, officials at the ambulance service contacted police after noticing four vials of the painkiller Dilaudid went missing from a supply closet in late October. A Baraboo police detective fixed a motion-sensitive video camera to the cabinet that contained the ambulance service’s remaining Dilaudid.
