Employee puts bricks in electronics packages to conceal theft

A man has been charged with theft after allegedly stealing electronic goods valued at over 20,000 yuan (US$3,106) from his employer and replacing the empty packaging with bricks, city prosecutors said yesterday.

The suspect, Su Qizhi, was a driver for a local electronic products company in Minhang District. He stole the goods in September 2008 to pay back gambling debts.

Minhang District prosecutors said he had stolen four laptops and a mobile phone as he made deliveries to Suning Appliance outlets, one of the largest home appliance franchises in China.

After stealing the goods, Su put bricks in the carton boxes and sealed them as if they had not been opened. Prosecutors said the four laptops were later sold to the gambling house for a total of 11,000 yuan.

On September 8, 2008, Su disappeared from his job without getting his pay as the company began to investigate the theft. He had been on the run for more than two years before turning himself in on April 26 this year.
