A man who was employed with the Utah Transit Authority has been accused of spending the past few years accumulating over $450,000 by sneaking fares from the collection boxes.

On September 10, a person notified the authorities when they thought his neighbor’s behavior seemed suspicious. The caller claimed they spotted what they believed was the man transferring buckets full of change into the garage of his home more than once. The neighbor also reported that he watched as the man took the buckets to Walmart and used a machine to cash the coins in for bills. When asking a regular employee of the Walmart if they knew what the situation with the man and the change machine was, it was reported that the worker believed the man owned an arcade as he made a habit of turning in coins at their store.

The suspect in question was identified as Taylorsville resident David Leroy Healy, a 54-year-old man who has worked for the Utah Transit Authority for close to two decades. Healy, who has done several jobs at UTA, was reported as most recently holding a position as a technician who maintained the equipment used for fare collection.

A Florida man with a unique method of treating medical ailments is facing charges after the authorities learned that he was allegedly just playing doctor and he was not actually licensed to practice medicine.

73-year-old Onelio Hipolit-Gonzalez placed an advertisement in a Hispanic-based online community promoting his medical services for those seeking a doctor in the Tampa Bay area. He reportedly publicized that he specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, cancer, diabetes, and a host of other illnesses.

According to the Florida Department of Health, they stumbled upon the ad of a “Dr. Hipolit-Gonzalez,” which reportedly displayed a picture of the man in what appeared to be a white physician’s lab coat. After looking into his credentials they reported that they did not have anything on file showing that Hipolit-Gonzalez was licensed to practice any kind of medicine in the state of Florida.
