LOS ANGELES (AP) Prosecutors say a Nevada man has been charged with stealing more than 500 blank vaccine cards from a COVID-19 vaccination center near Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old Las Vegas resident was a contract worker at the Pomona Fairplex site when the theft occurred in April. He faces one felony count of grand theft.

Prosecutors estimated the stolen cards could have a value of $15 apiece if illegally sold.

The defendant is scheduled to be arraigned August 25.

  1. Basically he stole a bunch of index cards with the CDC logo and a few lines with blank vaccine information. If they were not so easily duplicated, I might understand the felony charges but they are easy to duplicate so while I think what the suspect did was terrible given the times, it is what it is and what it is, is a misdemeanor. But, I have been wrong before.
