An off-duty FDNY paramedic was arrested by members of the detective squad from the 105th Precinct in Queens Village Tuesday, Aug. 16, for allegedly stealing a credit card from a patient.

EMT Robert Marshall, 29, was charged with grand larceny after he was caught on camera removing a credit card from a female patient at her home, according to an NYPD spokesperson. Marshall was preparing the woman to be transported to a Queens hospital when the alleged theft took place on Aug. 8.

Marshall was later caught on surveillance video as he allegedly made an unauthorized purchase using the woman’s credit card, the spokeswoman said.

The FDNY will suspend Marshall without pay for 28 days and further discipline is expected pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings against him, according to the FDNY.

Marshall is awaiting his arraignment in Queens Criminal Court.
