Two men were arrested for posing as employees of an X-ray removal company in order to steal old X-ray films.  The two men hit multiple locations.  It is believed that their primary focus was the silver contained in the films, however patient medical and personal information was also linked to the X-ray films.  Around 1,000 X-rays were stolen from Harvard University Health Services and a barrel of X-rays was taken from Anna Jaques Hospital.  The men were charged with conspiracy and larceny from a building.
