DUNWOODY, Ga. — Dunwoody Police arrested an Atlanta man in connection with a March 28 burglary at Piedmont Urgent Care on Mt. Vernon Road in which boxes of medical supplies were taken.

Johnny Ray Murphy, 28, was arrested without incident April 7 in Dunwoody one week after officials with the healthcare center reported the burglary.

Clinic officials told police they received two notifications from the burglar alarm the prior night. When they showed up at the facility, they called up video footage and observed a man they identified later as a former employee of the center. The man had entered the back entrance using a key fob, then entered a security code on the alarm, police said.

The burglar was observed taking two boxes of medical gloves, a box of protective masks with eye shields and assorted other medical supplies.

Murphy is charged with five counts of second-degree burglary. He remains in custody at the DeKalb County Jail.
