Police Seek X-ray Film Thieves In Virginia Beach

Police in Virginia are on the hunt for two men suspected of stealing 200 pounds of X-ray film from a hospital in Virginia Beach, according to the Associated Press.

It's become a growing problem, police say. Thieves are apparently stealing x-ray film to extract the silver from it to sell. This most recent theft involved two suspects and occurred at the Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, police spokeswoman Grazia Moyers tells the AP.  

After initially being denied access to the hospital for lack of identification, the suspects reportedly approached a radiology worker and said they were there to pick up x-ray film. 

They were directed to a film room where they allegedly helped themselves to a stash and then dashed off in a yellow truck, police hoping images from surveillance cameras will help them catch the suspects.
