TEMPLE - Police have arrested a 50-year-old Temple man accused of posing as a valet driver to a steal car from the Temple VA Hospital.

Kevin Joseph Donnelly was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle after the Bell County Attorney's Office reviewed the case on Thursday. Donnelly is now in the Bell County Jail, pending arraignment.

Temple officers were called out to the Temple VA Hospital at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20, about a stolen vehicle. Officers were told the victim came to the hospital about 6:30 a.m. for an appointment, when they pulled into the valet service lane, and waited several minutes.

A man, who claimed to work for the VA, then approached the car, helped the driver get out, and got a wheelchair for the driver to use. The man then told the driver he would park the vehicle. He got into the 2011 Ford SUV and left as though he was parking the car.

Following their appointment, the victim went back to the valet station to get back his car, but were told their keys were not there and the man they described did not work as a valet at the VA Hospital. Officers with the Veteran’s Administration Police Department helped them search for the car, but were unable to find it.

The security camera of the area was reviewed, and a suspect was identified as a possible former resident at the VA, Kevin Donnelly.

Officers were called out to the Harmony Court Apartments at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday night about the stolen vehicle. The stolen vehicle was found in an alley behind the apartments, and Donnelly was in the vehicle. Donnelly was taken into custody without incident.
