This is crazy an emergency room doctor was fired for stealing a dead patients Rolex, stealing from your patient is bad enough but now the family has claimed he killed their father on purpose just to get the watch. According to The Record, Cleveland Enmon, 32, was jumpy during his first appearance in a Stockton courtroom to answer a one-count indictment charging him with felony grand theft of personal property.

The case stemmed from the death of retired Manteca Police lieutenant Jerry Kubena, who died of a heart attack June 1 at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton. That’s when Enmon allegedly slipped Kubena’s beloved gold watch into his pocket.

“A family death is already difficult,
” Kubena’s daughter, Karie Nelson, said in an emotional statement after the hearing. “This took it to an all new level.”

Nelson and her brother, Jerry Kubena Jr., last week filed a wrongful death lawsuit further accusing Enmon of letting their father die so he could take the watch.

They also say the hospital attempted to cover up the theft to avoid liability. A St. Joseph’s spokesman did not reply to a call seeking comment.

Kubena’s son did not learn about the alleged theft from hospital administrators but rather from an acquaintance who works there. Nelson said she is angry at hospital officials and the doctor.

She said her father loved the watch, which was returned. It has an estimated valued of about $16,000, Kubena’s relatives said. Kubena retired from the Manteca Police Department about 20 years ago and then worked as a private investigator.

“There’s no doubt the doctor took my father’s watch,” said Nelson, who fears her father received substandard care from Enmon. “The minute he decided to do that, what was his interest to keep my father alive?”

According to the civil lawsuit Kubena’s children filed, two nurses noticed the missing watch and a bulge in Enmon’s pocket. Outside, a nurse said she noticed Enmon toss something in the grass, and a hospital surveillance camera captured Enmon.

Administrators immediately fired Enmon, according to the lawsuit.

“Stealing from a patient -that’s heinous,
” said Heppell, adding that this is not an uncommon case. “Unfortunately, yes, I have to say this isn’t the first time this has happened.”

It appears that St. Joseph’s administrators, who did not report Enmon to the Stockton Police or the state Medical Board, did nothing wrong according to state law, Heppell said.

She explained that Enmon did not work for St. Joseph’s, but rather a doctor’s registry, which supplies physicians to hospitals, similar to a temporary work agency.

As such, the Stockton hospital had no obligation under state law to report Enmon’s alleged crime, she said. San Joaquin County Deputy Public Defender Stephen Taylor said Enmon has two traffic warrants from California and a third from Georgia.
