Fired Georgia healthcare employee charged with burglarizing clinic

Officers have arrested an ex-employee of Piedmont Urgent Care who is suspected of stealing medical supplies, including face shields, from his former employer.

According to Dunwoody police, 28-year-old Johnny Ray Murphy had been fired from the clinic in February.

On Sunday, officials say the manager of the facility came to work only to notice the alarm was deactivated and supplies were missing.

Among the stolen supplies were gloves, masks, medication, and face shields, police said.
