Camera Phone Chicanery

Daremia Nikeka Crews, 24, is accused of stealing the names and Social Security numbers of at least 261 patients of the Shands Jacksonville Brentwood Primary Care Center in Florida, where she was an intern.

According to an arrest report obtained by The Florida Times-Union, Crews used her phone to snap photos of patients' records displayed on her computer screen, and then sent the images to a third party as part of an identity-theft ring.

Dan Leveton, a spokesman for the Shands Jacksonville Medical Center, which oversees the clinic, confirmed the incident and said Crews no longer works there. Jackelyn Barnard, a spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office, declined to comment, citing an ongoing investigation.

In an increasingly mobile world, it doesn't take much to steal sensitive data.
