LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shepherdsville man was in police custody Tuesday afternoon after officers say he was caught taking items from a donation box.

It happened at the Norton Suburban Hospital, near the corner of S. Floyd St. and E. Chestnut St. in downtown Louisville, shortly before 2 p.m. Police say 30-year-old Andrew T. Lee was caught taking items from the hospital donation box.

When security personnel saw what was happening, they chased him on foot, and he was caught outside the hospital, according to the arrest report.

Police say he had several needles and a spoon "for drug use," and he allegedly admitted to using heroin regularly. Police say he also had someone else's food stamp card in his possession, though he allegedly told officers that he "found" the card and that he was "not going to use it."

He was charged with knowingly fraudulent use of an ID card or an electronic code to receive benefits and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the arrest report.
