USC Upstate student charged with taking computers

Apr 8, 2010 7:26:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say they found more than 50 computers that belong to the University of South Carolina Upstate in a 27-year-old student's apartment.

Campus police told the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg they searched Dekel Strobles' home after an officer saw him disconnect a computer in a classroom Tuesday and put it in his backpack.

Investigators say the serial numbers on the computers found in Strobles' apartment match computers reported missing from the school in the past year.

University officials say 65 computers, most of them desktops, and a projector have been stolen in the past eight months. The equipment is valued at $63,000.

Strobles is charged with possession of stolen property greater than $50,000. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
