An employee of an international shipping company has been charged after Winnipeg police say he stole approximately $45,000 worth of electronics from the company’s warehouse and sold them online.
The 24-year-old, who hasn’t been named, worked in the customer service department.
Police began their investigation in mid-February and say the thefts occurred over a three-month period.
The suspect received about $20,000 from the sale of the stolen goods.
He was arrested and released on a promise to appear.
Police say customers suffered no permanent loss as a result of the thefts.
