FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Four in Your Corner still awaiting the arrest report for a former emergency room nurse accused of stealing drugs from Lee Memorial Hospital.

28-year-old Alex Rodriguez, who's since been fired, remains in jail on more than 130 felony charges, including forgery, fraud, and harm against a person.

Officials at Lee Memorial say they took immediate action the moment they noticed suspicious behavior.

But so far, deputies still haven't revealed what drugs Rodriguez is accused of stealing, or a possible motive.
