After being caught allegedly breaking into the home of a woman he transported to the hospital, a former ambulance service employee made more trouble for himself allegedly covering his tracks.

On March 1 LaFollette Police Officer Josh Vann was called to the Campbell County EMS to investigate a burglary.  Witnesses informed Vann that former employee Garrett G. Ramsey, 40, of 411 Eagle Bluff Road, had “unlawfully entered the business.”

Ramsey was terminated from his post at the ambulance service on Feb. 22 after being charged with multiple criminal offenses including attempted aggravated burglary, aggravated criminal trespassing and vandalism under $500 and was advised by Danny Sheckles, EMS director, not be on the premises, records indicate.

Despite the warning, Ramsey allegedly broke into the EMS office and accessed a patient care program which contains patient information such as hospitalization status, the warrant states.

Ramsey was charged with burglary, tampering with evidence, tampering with governmental records and aggravated criminal trespassing.

Ramsey was not arrested at the time of the March 1 incident but was picked up at his residence on March 5 by Jacksboro Police Det. Mike Starrett, according to Chief Danny Chapman.
