MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested an Oregon man accused of stealing a TV and PlayStation from a friend who was receiving treatment for a gunshot wound.

The Mail Tribune (https://is.gd/KAZhWR) reports Joshua Lines he was indicted this week on burglary and theft charges.

Police say Lines was with Matthew Atkinson three weeks ago when another man shot Atkinson. Lines rode with Atkinson and Atkinson’s mother to a Medford hospital, where Atkinson was admitted to the emergency room.

Police say Lines took Atkinson’s keys while the man was in surgery and used them to enter his home.

Surveillance footage allegedly captured the theft.



Atkinson’s gunshot wound was not life-threatening.
