"Tell me again – why do we need
so many printer cartridges?"
Marque Gumbs was a receiving clerk at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. To augment his salary, he took advantage of the hospital’s lack of knowledge about the number of printer cartridges they used every year.
For three years, he ordered extra toner cartridges, met the delivery people at the loading dock, and stole the cartridges. He then resold the printer cartridges on the black market.
The cartridges didn’t even fit the printers used at the hospital.
Mr. Gumbs, whose salary was $37,800 a year, had greater aspirations – he bought a Rolex watch, Louis Vuitton bags and watches and a 2011 BMW. He lived in an expensive Trump Tower condominium, and vacationed in Las Vegas, Cancun and Florida.
He stole $1.5 million in supplies before he was caught.
