A 31-year-old Schaumburg man who worked as a security guard for St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates faces theft charges after police say he took $700 from a patient earlier this week.

Oronzo Mazzoccoli, of the 1400 block of Illinois St., was released on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond after his appearance Thursday at the Rolling Meadows courthouse.

Hoffman Estates police received a report of the missing money on Wednesday, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Catherine Levine.

The money was taken from a safe in an office where patients undergoing testing store their valuables, Levine said. A surveillance video showed Mazzoccoli removing the money at about 11 p.m. Monday, Levine said.

Hospital officials installed the hidden camera recently after patients reported $312 missing on May 19 and $400 missing on June 15, Levine said.

Mazzoccoli, who received supervision for a 2009 battery, has not been charged with those thefts, Levine said.

Representatives from St. Alexius Medical Center did not respond to inquiries about how long Mazzoccoli has worked for the hospital or whether he remains employed.

If convicted, Mazzoccoli could receive from two to five years in prison. Probation is also available.

He next appears in court on Sept. 30.
