Well, now I know why my kids have such trouble getting a computer at school in Fairfax. Craig Soderberg, 60, was arrested with more than 1,200 laptop computers at his home. He was charged with embezzlement.
Soderberg of Alexandria is coordinator of warehouse operations for Fairfax County Public Schools and is accused of stealing the laptops, refurbishing them, and then selling them online.
It could be an interesting case if the computers were discarded or old. The defense may look at whether the computers were normally trashed or discarded after a certain number of years.
As noted by the Washington Post, this arrest comes after the earlier arrest of two employees in the county for theft of funds and putting their children on the payroll for work not done.
