Mayo says the theft was reported to law enforcement, the employee in question was terminated and "improved cash handling practices were implemented."

A statement from Mayo Clinic spokeswoman Susan Barber Lindquist Tuesday simply confirmed the theft happened in Rochester and it was reported to the FBI, adding "It's an ongoing investigation, so I can't provide other details."

A spokesperson for the FBI says they can't weigh in on pending investigations or even confirm an investigation is taking place.
