AN ambulance technician in Spain has been accused of robbing a recently deceased person of their credit cards.
It is alleged that the shocking theft occurred in the back of an ambulance in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.
An ambulance had been called after a person was found unconscious in the road. Despite their efforts, paramedics were unable to save the person’s life who was pronounced dead at the scene.
But shortly after the death, on August 28, relatives of the deceased noticed banking transactions using credit cards that had been held by deceased.
There were large purchases for €1,453 euros and then another to the value of €2,087 euros.
Police enquiries revealed that a hotel reservation made with one of the stolen credit cards was in the name of the health worker who was in the ambulance in which the
deceased person was transported.
The case is now due to go before the courts.
