Chicago police are searching for a man who walked into Mount Sinai Hospital and stole several patients’ property last weekend.

The man walked into the hospital, 1500 S. Fairfield Ave., about 1:30 a.m. Sunday through a door that was held open, Chicago police said.

He was able to make his way into a security office, then left the building a few minutes later carrying a duffle bag full of patients’ property, police and Mount Sinai Spokesman Dan Regan said.

Security guards at the hospital did not know exactly how much was stolen, but told officers that property bags were missing from two boxes of inventoried patients’ property, police said. No one was injured in the theft.

Anyone looking for personal items stored with Mount Sinai security between Oct. 5 and 6 should contact Chicago police directly, Regan said. Hospital security is providing transportation to the 10th District police station, 3315 W. Ogden, to patients and families who think their things may have been stolen.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
