Steal the patient’s jewelry!

Atlanta police got an arrest warrant Wednesday for a Grady Memorial Hospital employee they believe took wedding and engagement rings from a woman who died in a car crash late last month. Police believe the man, Tacuma Jawara, 54, of Atlanta is on the run and avoiding capture.Jawara is a social services representative at Grady, where 35-year-old Katherine Armstrong was airlifted April 30 after a wreck on I-85 near Flat Shoals Road, Atlanta police Detective P.J. Roberson said. After Armstrong’s death, her wedding and engagement rings — valued at $5,000 — were discovered missing.

    I was there in the emergency and intensive care units, but they didn’t take my wedding ring. Which isn’t worth $5,000, anyway. My cell phone, student IDs from Tech and Emory, and a MARTA ticket good for 3 more weeks is all that disappeared at Grady. That was a pain, but I guess I was lucky.
