LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- University of Louisville Police say they've arrested a former custodian for the school after he was caught selling $10,000 worth of computers stolen from the campus.
According to an arrest warrant, the crime took place between March 25 and March 28 of this year. Police say 26-year-old Darrell Holland had already been fired from his job as custodian at the school, when U of L police received a report that someone had stolen computers from the Student Activities Center.

Officers were able to recover four of the six computers.
A witness was allegedly able to identify Holland from a photo.
A warrant was issued for Holland's arrest on Nov. 9. He was taken into custody Friday afternoon. He's charged with receipt of stolen property.
