Employer investigates Amish kidnap suspect

Updated: Thursday, August 28 2014, 09:54 AM EDT

OGDENSBURG, N.Y. (AP) -- The hospital that employed a New York man charged with abducting two Amish girls is conducting an investigation into the possibility that he stole drugs. 

Stephen Howells Jr. worked as a registered nurse at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center in Ogdensburg before he was arrested this month on charges of kidnapping with the intent to physically or sexually abuse the girls.  

The Watertown Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/1qLTZRK ) that the hospital is conducting an investigation as it cooperates with police. A hospital spokeswoman would not comment on the specifics of Howells's case but stressed that patient medications are under strict security.

Authorities say Howells and Nicole Vaisey abused the girls before letting them go. They are being held without bail.  

A message left for the public defender believed to be representing Howells wasn't immediately returned.
