A Nevada man was charged Wednesday with stealing hundreds of blank COVID-19 vaccine cards from a Southern California vaccination center.

Muhammad Rauf Ahmed, of Las Vegas, allegedly took more than 500 cards from the center at the Pomona Fairplex in April.

The former Los Angeles city contract worker was charged with one felony count of grand theft, and he is scheduled to be arraigned in Department F of the Pomona branch of the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Aug. 25.

“Selling fraudulent and stolen vaccine cards is illegal, immoral and puts the public at risk of exposure to a deadly virus,” District Attorney George Gascón said in the statement.

The case remains under investigation.
