A Fairfax County Public Schools employee is accused of taking used laptops, refurbishing them and selling them online.
Police removed more than 1,200 computers and 156 hard drives from the Alexandria home of 60-year-old Craig Soderberg, a warehouse operations coordinator, last Thursday.
He was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of embezzlement.
Authorities began an investigation back in October after receiving a request from the school district's Internal Investigations Section.
Police say a number of stolen items were sold on eBay between June 1 and Oct. 30 last year.
The computers and hard drives found in Soderberg's home have serial numbers registered to Fairfax County Public Schools, authorities said.
Soderberg had worked for the school district since 1998. A school district spokesperson said Soderberg submitted his resignation Friday.
He is due in court Wednesday morning.
