How low can you go?

Pretty damn low. The Post:
Denver police have identified a suspect in the case of a woman who took a pain-medication pump from a soldier who lost a limb in Iraq as he lay in a hospital bed recovering from surgery at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center.

On Friday night, Crimes Against Persons Bureau detectives obtained a warrant for the arrest of 59-year-old Linda Coulimore for investigation of aggravated assault on an at-risk adult. . . .

The soldier was unconscious when the woman lifted the device, full of powerful narcotics, from equipment that gave him a dosage intravenously, Jackson said. Other than saying that the drugs were dangerous narcotics, he said he could not say exactly what they were.

A police source said the soldier lost a limb in a war-related incident in Iraq but could not comment further.
