SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. (WREG) -- A man is accused of a bizarre crime involving vials of blood and urine taken from an east Shelby County health clinic.
The vials were found empty just after 8 p.m. on July 3, 2019, when deputies arrived at Mid-South Urgent Care in a shopping center. Someone had tried to pry open the back door.
Deputies said they spotted a man in a striped blue T-shirt and black cap and arrested him. Court documents state that man, Kevin Giles, had a "small clear baggie" in his pocket "which appeared to be cocaine."
Documents went on to state he had "1 urine sample tube that appeared to be empty and 1 blood sample tube that appeared to still have fluids inside."
Deputies said they started searching the area and found several more empty tubes of urine and blood.
Employees told WREG those tubes of urine and blood were taken from patients that day and had been in the lockbox out back so a lab could come get them.
They said the camera there captured Giles breaking into the box and taking the tubes out. They said he then drank the blood and urine.
Giles was charged with burglary and possession of a controlled substance.
