Woman Charged With Grand Theft Auto

A 22-year-old east coast woman is facing a felony charge after deputies say she stole a doctor’s car from a North Naples hospital parking garage while he was tending to a sick child.

Jamie M. Stringfield of Fort Lauderdale was arrested Tuesday and charged with grand theft auto.

Arrest reports say the physician left the keys to his 2006 Infinity on the counter at the nurses station at NCH North Naples Hospital, where he had been caring for a sick child.

Deputies arrested Stringfield after video surveillance footage showed her entering and stealing the Infinity, which was parked in the hospital parking garage, reports said. One of Stringfield's family members told deputies that Stringfield had accompanied her to the hospital Tuesday, reports said.
