San Jose Medical Group, 185,000, Joseph Nathaniel Harris (update)

Joseph Nathaniel Harris has been arrested and charged with the April break-in to the San Jose Medical Group, and stealing two computers with 185,000 medical records on them. The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

“During Harris’ employment at San Jose Medical Group, there were several incidents of reported theft of money and medications,” according to an affidavit by FBI Agent Deborah Amrhein. “Because of these suspicions, Wallerstein asked Harris to resign. … Harris complied.”

During his employment there, Harris “bragged to fellow employees of his experience as a Green Beret, in military security and about his side business selling used computers,” Amrhein wrote in the affidavit.

SFGate carries an AP story, and when the story broke, Thurston also had comments.
