Marque Gumbs was arraigned Wednesday on a grand larceny charge in excess of $1 million and ordered held on $100,000 bail. The criminal complaint said he worked as a receiving clerk at the hospital responsible for ordering, receiving and stocking ink cartridges for the hospital's printers.      

The Wall Street Journal says the 32-year-old office worker intercepted the deliveries so he could sell the toner elsewhere.      

The hospital says Gumbs has been "terminated.''
