Preying on vulnerable patients at Edward Hospital in Naperville turned into an 11-year prison term for a 29-year-old Chicago man last week, according to a spokesman for the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office.

In August 2012, Tyrese K. Watson was released from prison after serving time for crimes including armed robbery and retail theft. Just a few months later in November, Edward Hospital security officers spotted him stealing personal items including credit cards from staff members and patients.

Watson was convicted of burglary and sentenced by DuPage County Judge George Bakalis Oct. 7, the spokesman said.

After he was caught stealing at the hospital, Watson sped off in a car and later used a pilfered credit card to buy fuel and cigarettes at Naperville gas station. The car was found in Bedford Park outside a shop where he was purchasing gift cards with stolen credit cards, police said.
