According to the Associated Press, 28-year-old Nicholas Norman Schelin has been charged with criminal possession of dangerous drugs and misdemeanor theft after allegedly donning scrubs and raiding a crash cart for drugs at a Missoula, Mont. hospital .

However, as the story notes, Schelin's attempted drug-pilfering didn't go very well. Making things more curious, he reportedly only grabbed three syringes, some epinephrine (a hormone and a neurotransmitter used to regulate the heartbeat and treat cardiac arrest), and two diazepam cartridges (otherwise known as Valium). Not exactly a great haul.

According to the AP:

Prosecutors say Schelin left a treatment room in the emergency department early Thursday, took the scrubs and an ID badge and was stuffing items from a crash cart into his pockets when an employee saw him.

The woman knew the man wasn't her co-worker, led him to an area with more people and whispered to someone to call security. The man fled. He was arrested outside a nearby church.

Back to the drawing board.

The AP reports that Schelin's bail has been set at $25,000.
