Janitor steals patient records for recycling money

Prosecutors have charged a Southern California health clinic janitor with stealing boxes of patient records for recycling money.

Los Angeles County chief executive William Fujioka says the stolen printouts of about 30,000 patient names, address and phone numbers from the Martin Luther King Jr. Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center didn't contain private medical information.

The Los Angeles Times says 55-year-old Robert Sanders was arrested Sept. 10 and he was charged Monday with felony commercial burglary and placed on administrative leave. Jail records show he was released on his own recognizance.
