SANTA ANA, California (AP) – Authorities say they are looking for a Southern California warehouse manager who is accused of stealing more than $ 1 million in COVID-19 tests from his employer’s clinic.
Santa Ana police say 33-year-old Carlitos Peralta had access to his employer’s shipping and delivery system.
His employer has seven department stores nationwide that are used to store and send COVID-19 tests to customers, which include clinics, pop-up test sites, schools and hotels.
Police say Peralta diverted nearly 100 separate shipments from multiple warehouses to its home.
Police on Thursday asked the public to contact the agency with information about his whereabouts.
