Subcontractor accused of stealing over $10,000 of tech from Humana
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man who stole over $10,000 of tech equipment while working for one of the largest employers in the city.
According to an arrest warrant, 33-year-old James Clements was employed as a subcontractor for Humana between June 10 and June 25, when he stole the property. Police say he took computers, laptops, keyboards and other computer equipment without anyone's consent or knowledge.
Humana staff eventually noticed that computers were missing. A careful review of video surveillance allegedly showed Clements using his scan card to enter offices where property was taken. Surveillance video also showed Clements carrying the stolen property outside to his vehicle, according to the arrest warrant.
Clements was confronted about the thefts by security officials, and provided a written statement admitting to his crimes, the arrest warrant states. He allegedly said he sold most of it to a computer store on Preston Highway.
Some of the stolen property was recovered through use of serial numbers.
The total value of the stolen property exceeded $10,000, police say.
A warrant was issued for Clements' arrest on July 31. He was taken into custody on Thursday, Oct 28.
Clements is charged with theft by unlawful taking.
