According to court records, back in July, Derrick Flores stole the bags of three doctors at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Officers claim Flores dressed in a white coat with a stethoscope to get into the surgeon's lounge.
The bags contained laptops, Ipads and prescription pads that Flores used to order Oxycodone and Lortab from a Kroger in Bellevue. Officers used a GPS in one of the Ipads to track him to a Motel 8 on Charlotte Pike in West Nashville, but Flores had already check out when officers arrived. They eventually arrested him Saturday at the In-town Suites in Bellevue.
Flores is facing charges of theft of property, obtaining drugs by fraud and forgery. He's in the Davidson County Jail on $40,000 bond.
