    A Maryland man is accused of stealing medical kits from at least two hospitals and selling them on eBay, Fairfax County police say.

    Burke Slater, 52, has been charged with grand larceny, money laundering and other offenses.

    The investigation began after a medical supplier in Florida found medical kits on eBay and ran the serial numbers. The medical supplier was told the items were stolen from INOVA Mount Vernon Hospital in the Alexandria section of the county and brought the case to the attention of police. 

    Investigators found seven medical kits valued around $33,000 each were stolen from INOVA Mount Vernon and a hospital in Maryland. Police say Slater had access to operating rooms as an employee of a medical supply vendor. 

    The medical kits made their way to Florida, Washington state, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. 

    Slater turned himself in Wednesday morning and was released on bond. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
