ALBANY, Ore. (KOIN) — An Albany man is in need of a critical medical device that was stolen from him this past weekend.

Police said the $15,000 device is a backup control system for the 37-year-old Mark Dempsey’s heart pump.

Dempsey said he does not want to press charges and just needs his equipment back.

The device was last seen in what looks like a camera bag.
