A video of a paramedic stealing a woman's money

Cameras filmed a paramedic in Britain stealing 60 pounds sterling (about 75 US dollars) from the home of a 94-year-old woman, moments after her death, according to what was reported by the British newspaper The Telegraph, Saturday, April 8, 2023 .

Surveillance cameras recorded the moment Mark Tetley ate the money and put it in his pocket at the deceased lady’s home in Shrewsbury, before realizing the cameras were filming him and putting the money back in its place. The victim’s son saw what happened later and said he was “disgusted”.

According to a British newspaper, on June 29 of last year, Titley and three other doctors were called to the woman’s home after a report that she had fallen in her garden. Despite their efforts to revive her for 20 minutes, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shrewsbury Magistrates Court was told that Tetley then entered the house to seek an order to “do not perform CPR”, but cameras filmed him flipping through and counting the money. The court was told that he turned around and saw the camera before immediately returning the money to its place.

The woman’s son noticed that the camera was recording and informed the West Mercia Police. At first, Titley denied the accusation by claiming that he was planning to keep the money safe for his relatives. However, he later confessed to stealing the money.

According to the court proceedings, Titley had ceased working as a paramedic and had resigned from the West Midlands Ambulance Service a few days following the accident.

While he was sentenced to 18 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, working without pay for 120 hours, fined £530 and an additional £187 for the victim.
