Firefighter steals pills

A Michigan firefighter is facing evidence tampering charges for reportedly stealing prescription pills from a crash scene.

Investigators said Steven Hart was caught red-handed on body cameras in Harrison Township last month.

Both deputies and firefighters responded to a motorcycle crash, which left one person dead.

Investigators said the video shows Hart picking up a bottle with prescription pills and walking away with it, but it's still unclear what he did with the pills that deputies never found.

Hart's attorney told the Detroit Free Press his client is innocent.

The newspaper said the firefighter is free on bond and will be back in court on October 3.
