MONMOUTH COUNTY, N.J. — A Monmouth County licensed emergency medical technician was indicted Tuesday for allegedly stealing funds from patients in Central Jersey, Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman.

Felipe Barruos, 25, of Hazlet was charged in a state grand jury with two counts of third-degree theft by deception and one count of fourth-degree theft by unlawful taking, according to the Attorney General’s Office. 

Barruos was employed by two private ambulance companies — the first between approximately Feb. 20 and April 30, 2013 and the second between the end of May and the end of July 2013.  The indictment alleges that between Feb. 20, and April 30, and again between May 27 and July 29, Barruos stole approximately $2,200 from three patients he was tasked with transporting.
